Post Nasal Drip
Hi Doc!

I am in my second tri and have post nasal drip and of course a really sore throat. What is safe to take for this?

Thank you!

Hi Shell
If you are not allergic you can take a penisillin antibiotic and some cepacaine sucking tablets - rather avoid decongestants and only rinse your nose with saltwater twice a day ( 1/2 teaspoon in 1 cup luke warm water)
