Hello, I want to ask, I was pregnant for about 1 month, before I was pregnant I took the drug itraconazole to treat my nail fungus, then when the medicine wasn’t finished I was already pregnant. Then is it continued or stopped? Thanks

1 Answer:

Hello Rahima, thank you for asking.

First, it must be confirmed first, do you take itraconazole as directed by your doctor? As you know, the drug is used to treat fungal infections of the skin, nails or mucosa. If you have never consulted with a doctor, you should consult with your doctor first. The doctor will assess immediately and determine the diagnosis, whether the disorder you are experiencing is really a nail fungus. Nail fungus infections generally cause itching or pain, swelling, redness, abnormal nail shape, and accompanied by pus or tissue fluid.

So far, itraconazole goes to group C drugs. This group means that, in research using experimental animals, the drug has the potential to cause fetal disorders. However, research is only limited to animals, there is no evidence of human research that the drug can cause fetal disorders. Class C drugs can still be given to pregnant and lactating women, if the benefits exceed the risk of loss. For example: if a pregnant woman experiences heart failure, she still has to take heart disease medication, even though the drug is in category C. That is because, if the mother does not take the drug, the risk is that the mother will experience fatality, so the fetus is at risk of dying.

Consult your obstetrician. The doctor will assess whether the mother's condition is urgent so that she must continue taking itraconazole or if not, the doctor may change other types of drugs.

Hopefully this answer can be useful. Regards.
