Hi
Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HCM virtual clinic!
Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully gone through your case, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.
1] First of all do not panic.
2] Steroid injections help to increase baby's breathing capacity in case it is born as premature baby. Medically we call it as lung maturation. It is not harmful to you or baby.
3] For sore throat i will suggest warm salt water gargles, anti cold tablet like SINAREST, and if fever or sore throat does not subside Cap MOX500 mg thrice a day for 5 days.
4] For tingling TAb NEUROBION forte twice a day for 10 days.
5] Please take rest, if needed uterus can be made to relax with Tab Asthalin or Duvadilan Or Ritodrine . This can be taken with your gynecologists advise.
I hope my answer helps you.
Thanks.
Wish you great health.
Dr Purushottam
