I know I can take paracetamol but can I take anything else. Got stuffed nose, sore throat and headaches

Honey and lemon on boiled water! It will help sooth your throat!! Hope you're feeling better soon flowers

I'm 28 weeks and full of cold-I have bought glycerin for my throat which I didn't think would work but I woke myself up coughing in the night and it helped! Other than that I just drink boiled water. Hope you feel better- I'm love my decongestant when I'm full of cold and I really miss it now! grin

Steaming with Vicks over a bowl of hot water helped me loads when I was pregnant.

Hot drinks - lots and lots of!

To try & clear your sinuses you can wash your face in really cold water, that sometimes makes everything run.

Also if you Google 'drain sinuses' there's lots of videos showing a massage technique for your face/ pressure points which can help shift some of the gunk and ease your head.
