Pregnant. Have severe cough and cold. Will that effect my baby? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Proceed with your query.
For cough I am having chericof syrup.but for cold I am not having any medicine.
But I want you to take care of yourself since pregnancy can lower body resistance and infections can behave in different manner.
May I know who recommended chericof syrup?
Is it safe having that syrup?
Chericof has not caused any serious effects during pregnancy. However it's use needs to be monitored by the doctor.
I am happy that you are taking the syrup as advised by a gynecologist.
Now as far as cold is concerned, there are a few options.
The most safest measure is to try steam inhalation.
The next option would be to try nasal sprays - saline nasal drops or decongestant spray.
Third option would be use of oral antihistamines.
All these measures produce variable results in controlling the cold.
Now your treating doctor would determine which option can be tried.
Have you followed what I said?
Do you have any other questions?
Yes I am .
Do you have any questions?
Is hernia will create any problem normal delivery?
Hernia would not directly interfere with delivery. However pregnancy and delivery can have its toll on the hernia.
K thank you sir.
You will need to be followed up regularly for the problem. Your doctor can evaluate hernia during the antenatal check up.
