I had a bout of itchy cough and cold in my 2nd tri, bur was too afraid to take any meds. Every night is application of Vaporub to my chest, neck and nose, and sleeping at an elevated angle. I also keep a flask of warm water at my bedside to soothe the itch. Recovered naturally with no meds after 1 week.
