Question: Dear Dr. XXXXXXX

I have asked you multiple questions before with regards to my wife's pregnancy.
She is in her 20th week end now.
Unfortunately she has contracted mild common cold with Runny Nose and a mild sore throat with No Fever.
Do you think there is any issue ? and what medicines are prescribed.
Its not a FLU as we got Influenza A and B Antigen tested. Its negative.

Brief Answer:
Viral rhinitis, nothing to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Thankyou for trusting us in your health queries.
No, there is no worry in viral rhinitis.
For mild runny nose and sore throat, she can take Tab levocetrizine once a day along with steam inhalation twice a day.
Since it's a viral rhinitis, there is no need of any antibiotics.
She can take cough lozenges for sore throat.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
