Headache

Does anyone know of any good home remedies for a headache?

I'm 15 wks pregnant, and would rather not use medication.

Thanks!

  • vicks rubbing cream... it does smell a little but if you lay down and rub even a slight amount on your forehead it will help owever if u need to I think you can definately take a tylenol but do check. Feel better~

  • PS also apply a little on your eyelids it really does help, of course very sparingly you will feel better within approx 15 min. Also watch your diet certain things can bring on the onset of a headache during pregnancy but they tend to be pretty common with pregnancies. Good luck once more~

  • alternate hot and cold packs on your head/neck/shoulders. acupressure -rub the spot between your thumb and forefinger (it will probably be sore).
