    For this bloody cold? Feel rough as and just want to go to bed, but have to look after my DS so rest is not an option til the weekend!

    I know I can take paracetemol, but does that do anything for a cold? Don't want to take it and it does nothing lol

    Boots do some stuff thats like first defence spray but their own brand. It's meant to clear blocked up noses etc. They had it in their parenting magazine and say it's fine during pregnancy & breastfeeding.

    Hope you're feeling better soon x

    Just took some paracetemol, had to try something as feel so awful. Had a quick look online but all I could find was 'best not to take anything blah blah blah' and 'get lots of rest' very helpful lol I would live in my bed atm if I could lol

    Paramol is a stronger paracetamol nd that's good I can only take paracetamol when not pregnant too and find his works wonders (I'm allergic to aspirin).

    i was told that vicks vapour rub was ok - is that not the case Becciboo?
    i had some tylenol that some one got me from america which is ok but apart from that paracetemol and lots of hot drinks and rest
    i was told to put vapour rub on my feet at night with socks on top to clear congestion/ and try steaming
    ive had a cold for 3 weeks now - it just wont go!!

    I've been keeping dosed up on paracetemol and it's been doing the job, never used just that before but it works really well on its own. Hopefully should start feeling better from tomorrow. Have picked up a bit this afternoon already!!

    Loula, feeling a bit better cold wise today but cold sore still there, although not all sore looking just a pinky red patch but stilld oesn't look good either way lol

    Also, I've never had a sty before but my eye is really sore today and OH had one recently and thinks it could be one?!

    Just can't wait til we get some nice weather and start being outside, sure all this cold and dark is running me down.

    All goodness going to the baby and nothing left for me lol

    Be worth it though xxxxx
