Can Pregnant Women Use Ear Drops With Chloramphenicol Content?
… I want to ask … may the ear drops of Erlamycetin brand be used for pregnant women … I want to put it into their ears … thanks
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The drug you mentioned has chloramphenicol generic content and is included in the antibiotic class. So that the main function of this drug is to overcome bacterial infections, especially in the ear.
Regarding your question, so far there are actually many sources that show different results regarding the safety of chloramphenicol for pregnant women. Some said there was no evidence that this drug could harm the fetus, and some did not advocate on the grounds of inadequate research.
In response to this, our advice is that you should ask the doctor who provided the medicine, whether you really need the drug or not. Or if you do not get it from a doctor, you should not use it because there are many ENT diseases that look and have similar symptoms but are caused by different things. You may use eye medicines that are labeled green or blue, but also note whether the packaging contains certain notes about pregnant women. In the meantime, don't use any ears and try to keep the ears from entering the water. So, hopefully answering your question.
