Brief Answer:
Precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
It is common in changing season so take following Precautions -
- avoid cold water and cold beverages
- avoid spicy and fried stuff
- take tablet cetrizine 10 mg twice a day for 3 days (safe in pregnancy)
But in case it persists or you start having throat pain or cough then visit your doctor as you might need an antibiotic for cure.
All the best.

Brief Answer:
Asthmatic component

Detailed Answer:
I think you have asthamatic component and thus allergic to changing weather and cold so you will need just protection from cold by sitting in warm room and wearing proper clothes especially muffler and cap.
Cetrizine can be taken as well in case of need as it is totally safe for both mother and baby.
Take care

My son had a small red itchy bump at the edge of his bottom a few days ago. We thought it was a bug bite. He scratched it and it got bigger and scabbed over. Now it is itching more, has a red area around it, and he has a few more similar bumps near it (also itchy). No other bumps on his body. Any ideas?

My 4 year old son was stung on the top of his ear this afternoon. That area has turned purple. Is this normal? Or a sign that he might be allergic? I don't know if I should take him to the doctor or just ice it. What do you recommend?
