What can I take for a cold and runny nose during pregnancy?

Cold in pregnancy: Whether you are pregnant or not, there is no specific treatment for a common cold. The best you can do is symptomatic relief and minimize the duration of symptoms. Antihistamines such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Claritin are mostly category b, but decongestants such as sudafed and cough medicines such as Robitussin or Mucinex are mostly category c. Avoid category c. Try saline nasal rinsing, rest and fluids. ...Read more
