Pregnant, fever, cold. Can i take crocin? What more should i do? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi how can I help u today ?
Sir last time I have chated with you about my wife having fewer and cold during pregenancy. Last time it gone away itself. But again now she has got light fewer and cold, whether she can take crocin 500mg twice a day. She is 28 weeks pregnant
yes, she can take crocin 500 twice a day
it is fine
it is common for pregnant women, to have more colds during pregnancy, due to the lowered immune system
hence they have to be more cautious
light running nose
she should try and use a face mask, to reduce the chances of infection
when was the last time she was seen by her doctor ?
45 days back, next visit is on 20th March, as wife is in her native in North Karnataka
She will be back to bangalore on 16th March
ask her to take good nutricious diet and fresh fruits, to help her immunity
One morning after breakfast and another one tablet after dinner night correct?
does she have fever, all the day ?
light fewer from yestarday
she can take the tablet, only when she has the fever
it can be only once a day , if she has it only in the morning
Ok I will ask her to take tablet morning or night only if she has fewer at that time
or one tab in the morning and one tab in evening, if she has the symptoms continuously
yes, that will be ok
Sir it should be after having food only correct?
yes, she can take it after food
She was also mentioning that food taste changed, as usual every face when they get fewer.
yes, that is a common effect during colds
you need not worry about that
as the symptoms go away, she will be fine
the more she travels, the more she would be prone to infections
she should reduce her travel as much as possible in the last trimester
wearing a face mask, and reducing exposure to cold winds should be done
She is going to do only one Journey from native to Bangalore on 15th , otherwise just hospital and scanning visits thats all.
Sir also the baby has bilateral polydactyl in both the hands. When is the correct time to remove these extra last fingers on both the hands.
has it detected any other changes, or it is the only abnormal findings ?
Yes sir 5 Month anamoly scan has detected it. So they suggested next scan on 10th March, but we are going on 16th march.
It is the only abnormality as of last scanning
if they are the only findings, then the surgery can be done after few months after delivery,
but the timing of surgery, exactly can be finalised after examining the baby at the time of birth
Ok Sir Thanks
