Q:

hi, my wife is 5 weeks pregnant and suddenly got mild flu and cold..can I use ayurvedic balm to get it out..



Neha Agarwal

Yeh that shouldn't be a problem. Also u can give her steam which can give her relief from cold. u can also give her milk with a bit of turmeric pwd. good for cold again. hope she gets well super soon!!

Rhituparna Mitra

Steam inhalation is the safest! Slow but sure shot healer. Most importantly, let her rest a lot...that's the only way to get rid of cold and cough.

Hi Abhishek.. Even I got severe fever and body ache when I was 5 weeks pregnant.. The temperature should be controlled.. That's very important.. I was given paracetamol and every one hour temperature was checked. Please take care.

what food should take before pregnancy... I mean to stay the baby in the womb...
