Overcoming Itching And Swelling In The Breasts Of Nursing Mothers?
Hello, I want to ask. R n r nA rash and itchiness around my right breast appeared, and I purposely applied betamethasone valerate ointment because I thought the ointment could relieve itching. R n r nThe problem, I am breastfeeding and after looking for information, the ointment should not be applied to breastfeeding mothers because the ointment absorbs into the skin. r n r nI want to ask, what actions should I take so that I can breastfeed my baby again? thank you
Itching and bumps that you experience can be caused by various possibilities, such as:
Bitten by insects
Insects can cause what you experience, where there are many types of insects that can be the cause ranging from mosquitoes, ants and others. Hives are an itchy and bumpy reaction that occurs on the skin due to an allergic reaction. This can occur if you are exposed to allergens that cause allergies to you. Contact dermatitis is an itchy condition of the skin that can be triggered by contact with certain substances that are allergens or irritants. Infections of the skin such as fungi, bacteria and others can also be the trigger.
The ointments you mentioned are a class of steroids, which are local applications on the skin that can be absorbed quickly and can flow into the breast milk. So that in use it must be under a doctor's supervision.
It's good, before a therapy is determined, it is necessary to determine in advance the conditions you are experiencing. Due to different conditions, different things must be done. Because it is feared that if the drugs used are not suitable, it will not cause the expected results or may be detrimental.
I hope this helps.
