Hi agree with Dr Jain. I would add few points though. Kindly hold a kerchief or some cloth on your month while breastfeeding. You seem to have viral cold. A Paracetamol dose will not harm baby's breast feed. Also try steam inhalation. And drink plenty if hot water to sooth your throat .

Hello there. I can understand your concern. Take a paracetamol for headache that's all I can day. I wouldn't suggest anything for cough because the cause for it needs to be determined for treatment. It could be allergic, it could be some infection anything. Therefore, consult a physician in person. Let him examine you and then he will be able to give you a suitable treatment. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
