.. Can a breastfeeding mother use miconazole ointment? Because my hand on my wrist had a wound .. I don’t really know what it was caused by it .. The last time I scratched it like the pores were lifted like that … Please advise … If there are other medicines please help ..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Miconazole is an anti-fungal drug. This medication is available in several types of preparations, such as ointments, powders, or creams.
A sore on the wrist that feels itchy (so that it is scratched) and peeling (like a pore is raised) can indeed be caused by a fungal infection, for example tinea versicolor (tinea versicolor), tinea manum, and so on. However, not only that, the wound could also arise due to other causes, for example:
Infections of other microorganisms, namely bacteria, viruses, mites (for example scabies, impetigo, herpes zoster, miliaria) Irritant contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with an irritating substance) Allergic contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to an allergy to a substance that is in contact with the skin) Seborrheic dermatitis (skin inflammation that causes scaly skin such as dandruff) Psoriasis (chronic skin inflammation that causes excessive skin regeneration due to autoimmune disorders) Xerosis (dry skin), etc. Given the many possibilities that can trigger your complaint, not only fungus, giving medication anti-fungal (including miconazole) is not necessarily appropriate. Especially in pregnant women, the safety of miconazole falls into category C, where there is already evidence of a negative impact on the fetus based on studies conducted on animals, although there has not been enough research to test its effect in humans. So, don't just use drugs without a doctor's examination .. Check your complaint first to a doctor or dermatologist so that the best treatment can be given.
In the meantime, you should stop scratching excessively or exfoliating the skin of the affected hand. Always shower diligently 2 times a day using antiseptic soap and wear clean clothes. Avoid contact between the wrist that is experiencing complaints with chemicals that have the potential to trigger allergies or irritation, for example detergents, perfumes, and so on. Wash your hands diligently and don't exchange personal items with other people.
Hope it helps ..
