Overcome Heartburn When Pregnant?
, before I say thank you for the doctor’s willingness to help enlighten me to my question. r nAnd now, I am 17 weeks pregnant. Currently experiencing heat disorders that make the neck swollen, then spread to the gums and throat. With this condition my body has a fever and chills. R nI check with the nearest midwife to get appropriate treatment for pregnant women. I was given 500ml of Amoxilin and Maganol. R nEvery time I took the medicine, my body was sweating profusely and the fever gradually went down. After a distance of 5-6 hours the fever comes again accompanied by pain in the gums, cheeks, neck, and swallowing even drinking. R nThis has been going on for 4 days. What should I do? R nBecause taking medication while pregnant makes me worry. R nThank you,
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously it was true that in pregnant women, the vigilance of drug use must be increased. This is because not all drugs that are safe to be used by certain women when they are not pregnant, are also safe to use when pregnant.
In your case, the condition you are experiencing is actually a common condition and can affect anyone, whether it is due to a bacterial, viral, fungal, inflammatory, or irritable infection. But in our opinion, you still need to consult a general practitioner or obstetrician at your next control. Especially because you have been treated by a midwife and now you have not fully recovered. Your doctor may later conduct a supporting examination and conduct periodic evaluations in dealing with your condition. For drugs that you have ever consumed, it is safe to use for pregnant women.
Meanwhile, take care of your health by resting more, consuming warm water, and maintaining oral health by regularly brushing your teeth twice a day and using dental floss and mouthwash. So, hopefully answering your question.
