    Default Vicks for colds

    Does anyone know if you can use vicks while pregnant? I have a really bad blocked nose and need something to unblock my sinuses so I can at least sleep.



    Any suggestions

    I've no idea. You could ring the pharmacy. They're usually pretty cluey on most products. If you can't rub it on your skin, perhaps just having something on a hanky inside your pillow or something might help you breathe.

    Hope you get some relief soon!

    I have used vicks a few times during this pg and also used it when I was pg with Nicholas and everything was fine. I don't think it has anything in it that would harm bubs.

    I had a cold early on in the pregnancy and my doctor told me it's fine to rub on my chest & back but not to do the inhale in hot water.

    Hi Ange,

    I had the same thing toward the end of my pg & it was really hard to kick. My OB said it was ok to use Otravin Nasal Spray but only once at night before bed, not the 4 times daily recommended etc.

    It was a god send.
