Hi Sourav,

Welcome to HCM.
In pregnancy medication should be avoided as far as possible, especially in the early pregnancy when the chance of causing harm to the baby inside your womb is very high.
Common cold is caused by Virus, and does not require any treatment. It will go off by itself. Cough is not welcome in pregnancy as it causes increased intra-abdominal pressure, so you may take some cough syrup under direction of your obstetrician, to get some relief from cough.
Don't forget to cover your mouth when coughing, otherwise it will spread to all the members of your household.

Homeopath Dr. Ritu's  Response

It is recommended to avoid any remedies during early weeks of pregnancy. Consumption of garlic or ginseng or capsules with their extracts may help you to get rid of it. Drinking plenty of fluids such as lemon juice and honey in warm water and hot soups will help relieve some of the symptoms like a sore throat. Gargling with salt water also helps ease the pain in the throat. Drinking hot ginger tea and warm milk with turmeric are also natural remedies that can be safely used by pregnant women.
