What should I do if a pregnant woman has a cold?Can you take medicine?will it affect the baby?

Poke ↑ Follow, there are answers to the pregnancy problems you care about.

The most worried about pregnant mothers is that I have a cold, can I still take medicine?will it affect the baby?

With this question that almost all mothers had, Xiaobian deliberately consulted Dr. Wang Hongmei from Honghe Hospital, a subsidiary of Yuxue Park, and listen to Dr. Wang’s explanation!

As the saying goes, "One autumn rain and a cold, ten autumn rain needed to wear cotton." Here I want to remind expectant mothers: add clothes appropriately to reduce the occurrence of colds.

The obstetrics and gynecology clinics are busy every day, and there are many pregnant women who have caught a cold in recent days.

Colds are known as "upper respiratory tract infections". The main reason is that viral infections are suffered from cold, mental tension, stress, and weakened body immunity.

Generally, symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, sputum, sore throat and other symptoms.

If you find yourself a cold, don’t be nervous first, and keep calm emotionally. The plan we recommend is: proper rest, symptomatic treatment, and choosing antibiotics and antiviral drugs that are relatively safe for pregnant women.

Taking fever as an example: First, judge whether your physical condition belongs to low fever or high fever (more than 38.5 ° C must pay attention to).Low fever: You can perform some physical cooling methods, such as dipping gauze or soft towels with warm water, twist to half -dry and gently wipe the pregnant woman’s neck, chest, bilateral armpits, limbs, hands and feet; drink more moreWarm water, help the water in the body discharge, and speed up metabolism.

PS: Pregnant women are not recommended to wipe with alcohol, which is easy to stimulate the skin and is not good for the body.The high fever first adopts the method of physical cooling. If the body temperature still exceeds 38.5 ° C within 2 hours, it is recommended to seek medical treatment immediately. Under the guidance of the doctor, use some A and B drugs that do not affect the baby.

Here, let me talk about the pregnancy classification of drugs.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has different degrees of teratogenic hazards based on drugs, and divides them into 5 categories:

Class A: In clinical control studies, no drugs were found to be damaged to fetuses in early, middle and late stages of pregnancy, and their danger was extremely small.

Category B: In the study of clinical control, the evidence of the hazards of drugs in early pregnancy, mid -term and advanced fetuses cannot be confirmed.

Class C: Animal experiments have found that drugs cause fetal malformations or deaths, but in unmanned control research, the impact of drugs on the fetus must be balanced during use.

Class D: Drugs are harmful to human fetuses, but they are very needed clinically and have no alternative drugs.

Class X: It has a significant teratogenic effect on both animals and humans, and these drugs are disabled during pregnancy.

Pregnant mothers can use medication, you may wish to compare with the above classification!
