Question
Hi Doctor,

My wife is 13 weeks pregnant and is suffering from blocked nose and severe cold. Could you advise a solution as the cold is leading to sleeplessness and irritation? Can she use Otrivin Inhaler for immediate relief or would it interfere with pregnancy?

Kindly advise.

Brief Answer:
Steam and anti allergic

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I am Dr Anshul Varshney for your help.
In such case I would recommend you to give her anti allergic like Levocetrizine 5mg once daily for 5 days.
Ask her to do steam inhalation with plain water 3-4 times a day.
Don't give her any antibiotic and otriwin as well.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query please ask me.
