Vagina Itching During Young Pregnancy?
I am pregnant young. I complained of itching on the vulva area and when it was cleaned while urinating it felt a little painful. But not hot burning. Previously I took trichonazole and ketonazole to cure it. But since I was pregnant I was confused, because I was afraid there were side effects for my child …
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. It is true that for pregnant and breastfeeding women, you should not use drugs carelessly. Not only prescription drugs that require special inspection and supervision for administration, over-the-counter drugs can also be harmful to the fetus. For example, ketoconazole that you mentioned has a C rating for safety standards for pregnant women, where the best is A, then B, followed by C, D and finally X for the absolute may not be used for pregnant women because of the danger.
So our advice is that you should check your condition with the obstetrician regarding the complaint, so that further examination of your condition can be carried out, and whether this is a fungal, bacterial or viral infection, is this a form of urinary tract infection or vaginal infection, is this caused by allergies or irritants, whether accompanied by hormonal disorders or simply because of an imbalance of vaginal bacteria. With a direct inspection, all of these possibilities can be considered and the handling can be more appropriate. Don't forget to say that you are pregnant.
Meanwhile, avoid having sex, do not use any drugs other than those given by the doctor, avoid using tight pants and underwear, avoid using scented vaginal cleaners, clean the vagina from front to back, routinely change underpants, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
