Any suggestion for sore throat, dry cough during pregnancy?

Hello Doctor, kindly help. I had a sore throat at 18 weeks of pregnancy which led todry cough, since then I have been treated with cough expectorants, erythromycin, amoxil and other natural remedies like gargling with warm water and salt, eating bitter kola, drinking hot tea and lime and generally drinking warm water no longer cold. I m now 28 weeks gone in pregnancy an I do not yet had relief, instead it gets so violent and I start to vomit. Please help I am getting really worried now.

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if you are pregnant and having cough soar throat, actually this doe not need any treatment, such symptoms comes around on its own unless have some obvious pathology, taking any treatment for this in state of pregnancy is not good, avoid all the medicines, you could simply try pure honey prior to bed just two tea spoon would give best result, take good care of your self, have nice and healthy baby.
