Fever Medicine For Nursing Mothers?
Hello, is the drug Sanmol 500 mg recommended not for breastfeeding mothers who have fever and cough?
Fever is a sign that the body is fighting against an invading infection or other conditions that cause it, such as inflammation of the joints, post-immunization or prolonged exposure to the sun. In breastfeeding mothers themselves, drug consumption needs to be considered where some drugs can enter breast milk and affect the child.
Fever in nursing mothers can be overcome in several ways, such as:
Stay hydrated and drink more water
Compress using plain water or warm water
Get enough rest
If the fever is not more than 38 Celsius, there is no need to take medication, enough using natural methods, but if the fever continues or reaches above 38 Celsius, you should immediately consult a doctor to find out the cause and be given further treatment.
