How To Deal With The Flu During 4 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
Dear Hello Doctor, I want to ask. Right now I am young. When I was 4w, I had a cold which caused a blocked nose. Especially at night, sleep is not sound and disturbing. May I use Vicks Inhaler to help my nose not get blocked and can breathe smoothly? Please enlighten me, thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
The product you mentioned contains menthol and camphor. Systemic exposure to the two ingredients reportedly did not cause significant impacts. Until now, there have been no scientific case reports that report the effects of using these products during pregnancy. Therefore, the product can be used during pregnancy.
Do not hesitate to consult directly with a doctor or obstetrician and gynecologist about your health condition and medications that may be used during pregnancy. To help deal with complaints, you are advised to get enough rest, drink lots of water, and eat a balanced nutritious food.
