What should I do if I have a cold during pregnancy? Can I really drink more hot water?

Hello everyone, I am Sun Yan, everyone calls me Jojo.I am a master’s degree in medicine. I am a chief doctor of the obstetrics and gynecology department of Shanghai Three -A Hospital, a member of the Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Shanghai Women’s Rehabilitation Medical Association, and a multi -platform self -media person.

Today I want to talk to you about a cold during pregnancy.

I have a patient who has just been pregnant for more than 3 months.

After winter, the weather is getting colder and colder.So she stayed in the air -conditioned room most of her time after pregnancy.Because the temperature difference between the indoor and outdoor was large, she was a little uncomfortable as soon as she went out.

Because she was pregnant, she was afraid of a cold or cure for a cold.

So she asked me: What should I do if I have a cold during pregnancy?

In fact, colds are mainly caused by virus infections. For the virus, our obstetrics and gynecologists do not have very effective drug treatment. Libavirin is disabled by pregnant women.

However, some professional suggestions of obstetricians and gynecologists can still help expectant mothers alleviate the discomfort caused by colds, such as fever, sore throat, and so on.

Today, I will talk to you about a cold during pregnancy. What should I do?

After a cold, don’t worry too much. You must depend on the specific situation and then apply the right medicine.For different situations, there are generally the following ways of processing.

1. General treatment

Drink more warm water, pay attention to rest, balance diet, avoid spicy, avoid fatigue, and enhance immunity.

2. For cough with sputum

In fact, most of the sputum is combined with the upper respiratory tract bacterial infection, which stimulates our throat and causes secretions.You can take cephalosporin or Azithromycin for treatment.

These drugs belong to the A/B drug during pregnancy and have no adverse effects on the fetus and can be used.

If you are in the first three months of pregnancy, the symptoms are not obvious, and you are unwilling to take medicine and can be suspended.After three months (the risk of tears decreases), the medication should be used, which is relatively safe.

3. For fever

Studies have found that if the high fever is over 39 degrees during pregnancy, the risk of fetal birth defects will increase, especially in the first three months.

Therefore, for high fever, especially the expectant mothers close to 39 degrees, they must cool down, and you can take antipyretic drugs (weighing risks and discover the benefits of continuous high fever).

You can use aspirin and acetaminol, but you must use it under the guidance of a doctor according to the actual situation of the individual.

Here, I have to say a few more words.Many expectant mothers have a cold or even high fever. They are only willing to physical cooling and refuse to take medicine, which leads to a continuous high fever for 1 to 2 days.

It is indeed cautious when taking medicine during pregnancy, but pregnancy is like raising flowers in the flower pot. Mom is a flower pot and the fetus is a flower inside.If you do n’t treat a cold with a cold, it ’s like a problem with the soil, and it’ s impossible to expect the flowers to grow well.

After all, it is not just you who have a cold and fever!It’s not easy to get pregnant, and cherish it!
