The Use Of Drugs To Treat Ear Infections During Pregnancy
Hello doc. I had an ear infection before I became pregnant and consulted with the ENT doctor and was given colergis, ciprofoaxin and fandex. And now my morning position is again pregnant. Can you consume this medicine again? Then what is the dose? Or other medicine? Thank you dock
Thank you for the question.
Ear infections can occur in the external ear (otitis external), but can also spread to the middle ear (otitis media). This condition is often characterized by painful ears, swollen ears, abnormal secretions, impaired hearing, can even appear fever, chills, swallowing pain, and many other complaints. Treatment for ear infections can vary depending on location, cause and severity. What's more, it's not uncommon for other medical disorders to have symptoms like ear infections, even though the treatment is much different, for example cerumen prop, corpus alienum, benign or malignant tumors, jaw joint disorders, ARI, psychic disorders, side effects of ototoxic drugs, and so on.
Therefore, it needs to be clarified first, what is the exact complaint you are experiencing right now? Has it been checked by a doctor and diagnosed as an ear infection? If so, has the doctor not also given you treatment?
Since you are currently pregnant, we do not recommend that you take any medication without first seeing a doctor. Because, even though you've experienced similar complaints before, it's not necessarily the same cause. Some of the drugs you mentioned are also not safe for consumption while pregnant.
So, before taking any medication, first check yourself to the doctor, obstetrician, or ENT doctor huh ..
I hope this helps.
