oral ulcers and constipation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query to HCM,
Constipation is common in pregnancy and the best way to avoid is to keep oneself well hydrated and eat fibrous diet. She can take syp cremaffin 2tsf at night for 3 days and this shall help.

Secondly, Mouth ulcers are often due to vitamin b6 and 12 deficiency, so she can start multivitamin capsules once a day for next 10 days especially ones with methycobalamine 1500mcg. For local application she can use mouth ulcer paint like ZYTEE ointment 1/2 hr before food intake for 7 days.
This should help . If ulcer pain is teh prime cncern during eating or chewing then instead , she can use OINTMENT LIGNOCAINE 1% for local application 1/2 hr prior to food intake, this shall prevent any pain.
Regards
