Can I take Hyland's Cold'n Cough? I'm 9 weeks pregnant.

Can I take Hyland's Cold'n Cough? I'm 9 weeks pregnant.

YES: Unlike most medicines and herbs, which tend to have questionable or unproven safety in pregnancy, homeopathic medicines are very safe to take during pregnancy. You might also want to take Vitamin C 500 mg 4x/day and zinc acetate lozenges 3x/day. If the Cold'n Cough does not help you might want to try an individualized remedy.

Is it safe to use children's Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with hylands cold n cough for kids? My daughter is 2.

Is it safe to use children's Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with hylands cold n cough for kids? My daughter is 2.

No: Cough & cold medications are not recommended for children under 4 years. They do not make colds better, shorten how long a child is sick, or prevent a child from worsening, & they can be dangerous. Coughing during the day helps your child keep her airway clear. If she cannot sleep at night, try a cool mist humidifier, a teaspoon of honey or saltwater nose drops. Good info here: kidshealth.org. ...Read more

Cough and colds of 7weeks baby?

Cough and colds of 7weeks baby?

Not much to do: Not much to do to help babies at this age. Antibiotics do not kill viral colds and will not help. Cold medications are not approved for use at this age either. You can try nasal saline and bulb suctioning to get the snot out. I find that sitting in a hot, steamy shower (the water should not touch the baby - just sit in the steam) with the baby upright to get the snot to flow out, will help. ...Read more

What can kids with a cold or cough be given?

Fluids, extra rest: Cold and cough medicines do not shorten the illness and probably won't help much.. Extra sleep, some juice or water (both fluid and vitaminc), and some time in a steamy bathroom or a humidifier will do more than medicine. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen might help the aches.
