Drink fluids: keep taking prenatal vitamins and hydrate well. You may take tylenol for symtoms.

Agree with Dr. D: There is no medication to boost immune system. Take paracetamol for fever and pain, no more than 4 g/day. No alcohol. If you develop breathing difficulty, go to the nearest hospital, immediately. Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
