Is It Dangerous To Take Itching Concoctions From Pharmacies For Pregnant Women?
I asked the dangers of taking the itchy itching mixture from the pharmacy for pregnant women because I have long had this allergy
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what are the exact ingredients of the concoction drug? What kind of allergic symptoms are you experiencing?
Itching, indeed one of them can be caused by an allergic reaction. In addition, itching can also occur due to skin irritation, xerosis, skin infections, insect bites, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, neurodermatitis, anxiety disorders, liver disorders, kidney disorders, and many other possibilities. In pregnant women, itching can also be aggravated by hormonal fluctuations in the body. Treatment of itching can certainly be different depending on the underlying cause. Therefore, before concluding that your itching appears due to allergies, you should first consult a doctor, dermatologist, or obstetrician. We do not recommend that you take any medication to treat itching before seeing a doctor. Because, most anti-itching drugs and / or anti-allergic drugs are not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs so that consumption is only safe if done under the supervision of a doctor. Inappropriate drug consumption, especially in pregnant women, is very risky to affect the development of the fetus in your womb.
So that your itching subsides, rather than taking drugs carelessly, you better do the following tips:
Do not scratch excessive skin, though itchy
Apply calamine lotion to itchy skin
Take a clean and diligent bath
Wear clothes that are soft, loose and absorb sweat
Apply calamine lotion to itchy skin (make sure you use a specially formulated lotion product to be safe for pregnant women)
Calm the heart and mind, don't stress or worry too much
Drink plenty of water
Avoid contact with substances that are vulnerable to make you allergic, for example cold, dust mites, pollen, fur or animal dung, etc.
Hope this helps ...
