Dermatologist 's  Response
u need not to worry as ur child has been develop fully as she is near term
main thing to keep in mind that she must not have dehydration due to dysentery as dehydration give stress to baby
better to consult gynecologist and physician
if treatment is taken in early and proper way it is safe .

Thanks for query,
By dysentery baby is not going to affect.
But treatment is necessary to your wife to control the dysentery and to prevent dehydration.
There is now no problem taking medicines for dysentery.
Give her plenty of water.
Give light diet like buttermilk,curd,rice.
ok and bye.
