I have been sick for the last few days. It sucks. I have been down with a viral infection plus they found some bacteria so I am now on antibiotics. I was taking benadryl for my sore throat but it didn't help much. My doc wrote me a prescription of Cheratussin AC syrup yesterday. It feels like it has alcohol in it which is why I discountinued its use. I am really scared. Please help. Also, a friend of mine recommended an herbal decoction of holy basil leaves, cardomom pods, cloves, ginger and honey to soothe my sore throat. I took that once but I read it online that basil leaves are not safe for pregnant women. My throat is killing me. I hope it will not affect my baby. Please advice. Any home remedies I could use? Thanks!
