, I am 9 months pregnant, I happen to be having eye pain because of a stye. Yesterday I went to the doctor and was given an antibiotic drug amoxsan 500g, eye drops eyefresh HPMC dextran 70 cendo minidose, and mycos cendo ointment. Are all the drugs safe for me to use while pregnant? Thank you

Hello Mrs. Shabrina.


Thank you for the question.


In pregnant women, there are several changes in the body, one of which is a decrease in the body's resistance to infection. In the case of the mother, the infection that occurs is an eye infection. Infection of the eye can be caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, or parasites. The whole cause of this infection can occur in pregnant women. A stye or hordeolum is an inflammation that occurs due to an infection of the gland of the eyelid. Hordeolum can occur in 1 eye or both eyes. Causes of the hordeolum include:

expired cosmetics
not cleaning cosmetics while sleeping
use contact lenses without washing your hands with soap beforehand
have inflammation of the edge of the eyelid

The treatment given by the doctor is:

Amoxsan or amoxicillin is a class of antibiotics which in the indication for its use in pregnancy are included in group B. Group B means that in animal studies it does not show any risk to the fetus, but in pregnant women there have been no controlled studies. So, the use of amoxicillin for pregnant and lactating women must be used with caution. Compared to other antibiotics, amoxicillin is still classified as safe for pregnant women, but if there are complaints, you should immediately see a doctor.
eyefresh dextran eye drops are used as eye fresheners, but their use in pregnant women is not recommended because they may pose a risk or fall into category C.
cendo mycos ointment is an eye ointment that is not recommended for use in pregnant women because it may pose a risk or fall into category C.

You should consult your doctor again for this.


The suggestions that I can give:

maintain eye cleanliness by always removing make up before bed
compress with warm water hordeolum eyes for 10-15 minutes 3 times a day
avoid wearing contact lenses until the hordeolum heals
do not rub the eyes
do not use cosmetics that have expired
wash your hands regularly with soap and water

Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.


Regards,
