Post subject: Got a cold
Coming up to 16 weeks pregnant and still feeling very tired, thankfully thats all my first trimester had for me apart from cramps. Now I have a bad cold and I dont want to take any paracetomol.
Just want to know if I can use that new 4head stick that you put on your forehead, like a balm? If i could just get rid of my headache I can deal with the rest..just!
Thanks in advance

Make sure you don't have a fever. A fever can be harmful to the baby and paracetamol might be a good idea.
If it's jut a headache I find that putting my head over a bowl of steaming water with a towel over it helps unblock the nose allowing for breathing and then I lay down in the dark with a cool towel over my forehead.
