    You can take paracetamol but that's pretty much it. I've had 2 nasty colds and a stomach bug since getting my BFP and it was horrible having to get through them with nothing!!

    Hi there,

    I came down with a cold on Friday and went to the chemist and they advised to drink lots of fluid (especially OJ as Vitamin C), and said I could used Vics Vabour rub on my chest and back (this really helped me get sleep at night as I was so bunged up).

    Also saw on another forum that hot water with honey and lemon was good - so I tried that too.

    I rested all day Saturday and was feeling 90% better by Sunday afternoon.

    Take care. XX

    Acetaminophen is safe...drink lots o fluid hun...I had a real bad cold with strep throat and that is all the doc was able to give me...lemon and honey soothes the throat...so good... plus the lemon helps if you have nausea.

    I was told no Vics Vapour rub or olbas oil - the advice has changed in the last 6 weeks and anything with eucalyptus oil is not recommended
