Me too 18weeks preggy suffering from sore throat, I take strepsils since it's safe for preggy, and I gargle bactidol. Now my throat is painless but still on process of healing. Just drink alot warm water and stay hydrated. Avoid sweets.

I'm 18 weeks preggy, I'm coughing so hard my throat is very dry. This morning around 5 am i drink milk then i vomited all, then i got diarrhea, then i eat a little bit of rice and soup about 9am, i vomited everything i eat. So now I don't know what to do. Im scared that it will affect my baby.

Bawal daw po ang nilagang luya sa buntis

Hi there , for fever paracetamol is generally save to consume during pregnancy. As for ur sore throat, i suggest u drink hot honey lemon (not too much honey please as it will worsen ur sore throat).

I'm also having sore throat for weeks now. I am drinking warm water and honey lemon for it but it doesnt seem to work since I still have it.

Cetirizine is safe and actually antibiotics if necessary. However, we don’t know about your health history/allergy so better take mummies’ advices here for general reference only and go to another doc or your gynae, mummy.

Go to another clinic. I work in healthcare as well and im seeing other GP for pregnancy safe medication... best to ask frm gynae if u have an appointment coming up.
