What medications can be taken to treat common cold during the 14th week of pregnancy?

Hi! I am 14 weeks pregnant with a head cold. It's my second day with the cold and the only medicine I have used in the past 48 hours were 2 Excedrin first thing this morning. I don't take any medications daily. I have Mucinex DM and night/DayQuil. I haven't had any complications in my pregnancy. Is it okay to take any of the things listed that I have on hand?

Excedrin is not hod to be used in pregnancy neither aspirin.
It would be better if you use acetaminophen, Paracetamol.
Also you can use Tylenol which is mostly used in flu.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello Doctor, My Son is 8 years old and he has cold all thru the year, Whatever medications he takes only there is a temp. relief. He has running nose always. Only this happens in our home. When he goes to school he is fine. Evening or late in the night there is nose blockage, in the morning he sneezes 4 or 5 times and tends to become normal by 8 Am. We have tried changing the soap, cleaning the house, bed regularly. Not sure what he is allergic to. From the birth he has a sensitive skin, initially we used Olivatiam soap, for the past 3 years we are using Cinthol lime. Please advice what needs to be done.
