Hi Malinda,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Coughs, colds, nausea, vomiting, and dizziness can have various causes. Some of the most common are due to viral infections, bacterial infections, allergies (for example due to cold or dust), dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), food poisoning, and so on. Treatment for each of these conditions can vary depending on the cause and severity of the symptoms.


The doctor asks if you have delayed menstruation to determine whether you are pregnant, or not. Because, most cough and cold medicines have the potential to harm the development of the fetus in the womb, especially when consumed in the early trimester of pregnancy. Therefore, giving cough and cold medicines to pregnant women must be based on careful consideration, which one is the greater the benefits and risks.


Not everyone who has a cough and cold should get cough and cold medicine right away. If the cause of your cough and cold is strongly suspected to be due to infection, then giving drugs to eradicate the cause of the infection is certainly more important. That way, the symptoms that appear, including coughs and colds, will gradually subside on their own. If the cough is severe enough, and your condition is declared safe to consume cough and cold medicines, then your doctor will consider giving you cough and cold medicines.


Our advice is to take the medicine first according to the doctor's instructions. With proper treatment and a healthy lifestyle, generally your complaints are not caused by dangerous conditions. Here are natural steps you can take at home to relieve your complaints:

Get more 6 to 8 hours of rest
Drink plenty of water, especially warm water
Stay away from exposure to substances that you might be allergic to, for example cold temperatures, dry air, dust, pollen
Reduce consumption of foods that often trigger coughs and nausea, for example foods that are too cold, foods that are too oily, foods that are too sour and spicy
Increase the consumption of fruits rich in vitamin C, for example guava, strawberry, orange, lemon
Do not smoke

If the complaint still doesn't get better in 1 to 3 days, don't hesitate to check your complaint back to the doctor for further treatment, ok?


I hope this helps.
