Natural remedy for cattah

(3 Posts)

I'm 31 weeks, and keep suffering with cattah on my chest, especially at night. I keep having coughing fits when I first get into bed. I've also got hayfever which isn't helping.

Does anyone know of any natural remedies I can take while pregnant?

I have noticed i'm getting a lot of catarrh too. I'm 20+5 now and it's been there pretty much from the start. I bought a steam inhaler from Boots and I've found it really helps.

Nothing is going to beat a sudafed but the inhaler with a drop of olbas is surprisingly effective.

I'm lucky and I don't suffer from hayfever but I read an article about 'haymax' which is completely safe to use when pregnant. If you google 'haymax' pregnancy' the article I read should come up.

Hope this helps and you feel a bit better.

Thanks Pastabee, I'll give the inhaler a go
