There Are Bumps On The Outer Lips Of The Vagina?
I have a bump on the outer lips of the vagina. N I’m 7mg young pregnant. The DR said that one hospital in Jakarta had boils. And I was given a gentamicin ointment, can I use it? Because I read it’s not good for pregnant women. Should I continue right until the lump / boil disappears? Dangerous about my pregnancy? I am also given Amoxilin. Should I drink too? Thanks for the answer.
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lumps outside the vagina can mean several things, including:
Bartholin Cyst Genital Warts Folliculitis Molluscum contagiosum
Which each of these conditions have their own treatment options and not all of them are caused by bacteria. In your case, if you have already checked with a doctor, it means that your steps are correct. The medicine given by your doctor, both gentamycin and amoxicillin, is an antibiotic and that means your doctor suspects that you have a viral infection based on your examination.
Regarding your question, it's true that gentamycin is not the best drug choice for pregnant women and should only be used if it has been carefully considered that the benefits outweigh the health risks it has. But this is more the drug gentamycin taken, not the one applied. If the medicine given to you is applied, then the drug should be safe to use. Then for amoxicillin, this drug is indeed safe for pregnant women.
But if you still feel worried, and you yourself also forgot to tell the doctor that you are pregnant, the best step is actually to clarify again by visiting the doctor again and ascertain the treatment options he gave. Meanwhile, continue to take care of your pregnancy by avoiding cigarette smoke, alcohol, and having a routine pregnancy check at the obstetrician regularly. So, hopefully answering your question.
