  • tylenol
    helpful huh? LOL

    also you can fix some hot tea with lemon and honey in it. the lemon and honey have natural anibacterials in them that will help heal your sore throat.

    although if it last for more than 2-3 days, call your doctor as it could be more serious such as strep.

    good luck!

  • Tylenol and cough drops. That's about it. I wouldn't take too many cough drops while pregnant though, because they'll probably make you throw up.

    You can also gargle warm salt water. Be careful not to swallow the water.
