Ii am 7 months pregnant what can II do for a runny nose?

Several options: This is a common symptom in pregnancy. The safest choices are nasal saline and/or breathe-rite strips. Prescription topical nasal steroid sprays (ie, flonase, nasonex) are "category c" in pregnancy, but are poorly absorbed into the bloodstream and thus a relatively low risk option. Pseudoephedrine may be used, but should not be used without first checking with your obstetrician first. ...Read more

I can't remember one day my 2 year old hasn't woken up with a runny or bloody nose since birth. Mri shows sinusitis. What can we do for some relief?

Treat and moisten: If the studies show sinusitis that will obviously need treatment. Doing a lifestyle audit to exclude all irritant sources like smoke, fumes, dust, scented products can help. Antihistamines may help some.Liberal use of a nasal wash with saline and a nasal gel applied to the nasal entrance at bedtime can stop the nose bleeds. ...Read more

I hate spring, :( as per usual I'm having a dry cough, itchy throat & eyes and a runny nose. But I am breastfeeding. What can I take?

Nasal steroid: Avoid antihistamines and decongestants as both can impair breast milk production and flow. Consider taking nasal steroids such as flonase and cromolyn sodium such as nasalcrom. Both are available over the counter. More about allergy remedies and breastfeeding: http://kellymom.com/bf/can-i-breastfeed/meds/cold-remedy/ ...Read more

What do you suggest if i'm 20 years old, diabetic and for the last two weeks i can't sustain an erection help!?

I'm pregnant with asthma and my nose is always stopped up (even b/4 pregnancy). I want to buy an humidifier but what kind?

I'm pregnant with asthma and my nose is always stopped up (even b/4 pregnancy). I want to buy an humidifier but what kind?

Save your money: Humidifiers may provide some relief but they also encourage dust mite growth so if you are allergic then this is not a durable solution. Most women don't want to take any medicine during the 1st trimester. Nasal saline is safest but some prescription nasal sprays are not so bad. It is imperative that your asthma is well controlled. Risking Fetal hypoxia is far more dangerous than asthma meds ...Read more

Moderation: You don't have to limit too much. Make sure to get lots of leafy greens. A vitamin d supplement is also a good idea. Also limit caffeine intake to one drink per day. You can have fish but watch the type and quantity: http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-living/pregnancy-week-by-week/in-depth/pregnancy-and-fish/art-20044185 ...Read more
