Your physician is your best guide here -- if you had routine prenatal care you were tested for HIV. ...Read more
Fluids and rest: Same as what's best for you. The body's immune system does great clearing cold viruses; we do best when we help it do its job using lots of fluids, rest, raising the head of their bed at night, running a cool mist humidifier, nasal saline drops.
