I'm curious as to which toothpaste is best for reducing pain caused by cavities when taking hot or cold things?

None

Head-mouth
Toothpaste doesn't fix cavities. Some toothpastes help prevent cavities from forming, others may remineralize microscopic areas of calcium loss, but if you have a cavity (infected hole) it can only be fixed by a Dentist. Please put down the computer, pick up the phone, and call a Dentist before your decayed teeth turn into abscessed teeth.

What is the best treatment for swollen feet and ankles at 35wks pregnant? Soaking in hot or cold water?? And how to keep the swelling to a minimum?

Elevation

Elevate your feet, rest drink lots of water. That should help to reduce swelling. You should also contact your MD if you are swelling and she is not aware. Sometimes swelling can be seen with high blood pressure during pregnancy.

Been diagnosed with viral pharyngitis, taking cefaclor, can I drink a hot toddy tea with liquor?

Viral pharyngitis?

Adenoidectomy
If it's truly viral pharyngitis, there's no need for the antibiotic (unless there was a bacterial superinfection as well). Liquor may numb the discomfort, but alcohol dries the throat, which the body tries to remedy by producing more mucus. Tea with lemon & honey might be a better choice.

best cold remedy?

Tincture of time!

Hand
Millions have colds yearly. It is due to rhinoviruses and others. There is no cure. Rest, humidification, fluids, proper nutrution (chicken soup), fever control, vitamn c, perhaps an antihistamine to dry one up or perhaps a decongestant to open one up may be used. But usually observation, fluids and rest are all that is needed. Cover the coughs, nose and wash the hands. Stay at home!

Best way to treat a cold?

Many people

Dysentery
follow the wisdom of the late Linus Pauling and take large doses of vitamin C. Trouble with that is that you get diarrhea. I take several doses of Echinacea but there is not a satisfactory answer to your question. Every cold is different
