Cough And Cold During Pregnancy: Treatment
How to Treat a Cold or Cough During Pregnancy
If you get a cold or a cough, try treating it by doing the following:
Get ample rest – Take naps, sleep through the night, and sit down to relax. These are great ways to give your body much needed down time.
Drink plenty of fluids – Drink water, juice, or broth to add necessary fluids back into your body.
Eat well – Even if you cannot stomach larger meals, try eating small portions often.
For your own comfort, it is important that you treat the symptoms associated with your cold or a cough.
Natural remedies to some of your most bothersome symptoms include:
Reduce congestion – Place a humidifier in your room, keep your head elevated on your pillow while resting, or use nasal strips.
Alleviate your sore throat – Suck on ice chips, drink warm tea, or gargle with warm salt water.
It is best to reduce the number of over-the-counter medications you take. Many medications you normally would use to treat the symptoms of your cold are not safe to take during your pregnancy.
Sirop Lambert Natural Cough Syrup is recommended to help alleviate the symptoms and get rid of the cough. Since it is made of natural ingredients, it is safe to use for pregnant women. Since the health of every patient is different, we always recommend talking to your specialists before taking any medication.
