The Use Of Drugs To Treat Prickly Heat In Pregnant Women?
pregnant women can use betason cream or not for prickly heat?
Thank you for the question. Prickly heat is a small, red, itchy rash that appears due to clogged sweat glands so sweat cannot evaporate and this causes skin inflammation. This condition is a condition that is often encountered and generally does not require special medical treatment. Betason cream is a cream that contains steroids that can be used for this complaint. This cream is included in category C drugs for pregnant women or in other words, in animal experiments containing, the use of this drug can cause risks to the fetus, but there are not enough studies on the use of this drug in pregnant women. The use of this drug may be considered if the benefits outweigh the risks to the pregnant woman. As such, it's a good idea to try other simple treatments first. Handling you can do for example:
avoid exposure to hot air
do a cold compress on the prickly heat area to reduce itching
avoid scratching itchy skin
use loose clothing or clothes with materials that easily absorb sweat
If the methods above do not help, please consult your doctor before using the cream you mentioned. Please you be careful against the use of any drug during pregnancy.
Hope this information is useful.
