please proceed with the query.
hello Dr XXXXXXX ..
My wife is in 5th month of pregnency.. from last few days she is having lot of vaginal itching
ok, has she taken any medication for this.
is there any discharge or any burning sensation while passing urine
there is some discharge sometimes... but it is not frequent
what colour is it?
also she should wash the area with mild antipseptic soap like dettol
with hot water, and use only cotton under clothes
right... in between by any chance are there any side-effects of canesten cream?
also she should drink lots of fluids to flush the infection.
no there is no documented side effects till now
which has to be prescribed by a Gyneac
let her not use public toilets
this will cause infections easily during pregnancy
if it increases she will need to send a vaginal swab for culture and examination
all infections during pregnancy should be carefully monitored
ok... so she can start using canesten now.. right?
because it can spread to foetus
yeaa.. that's right
if it does not reduce in few days, take her to a doctor
do you have any more queries.
right... makes sense
yes.. she is also having back-ache from last couple of weeks
is it normal during pregnency?
yes it is normal.
let her take rest as often, is she working
no.. she is not working
any suggestions to reduce the intensity of pain?
let her take rest, take is sufficient, as days go by it will increase,she can apply hot water bag on her back
sit in a straight backed wooden or plastic chair
not soft cushioned
Do you have any more queries.
