Runny nose during pregnancy - a phenomenon well, very frequent. Firstly, because of the natural fall of immunity, a woman is exposed to viruses and colds. Secondly, because of physiological changes during this period, so-called rhinitis of pregnant women often develops, when the nose is laid in itself irrespective of the infectious disease.
Than to treat a stuffy nose and how to regain the ability to breathe?
Can Pinosol be Pregnant?
In a pre-bereave life, many women dig in the nose with Pinosol, because these drops are considered safe, because they are created on the basis of natural essential oils. But how to be now, when an unpredictable pregnant organism can behave in the most unexpected way? And how safe is this treatment for a baby?
Essential oils do not pose any threat to the fetus, but can quite cause an allergic reaction in a woman, and this condition is already fraught with certain consequences. With reduced immunity, which is observed in almost all pregnant women, the risks of allergy increase.
In the instructions to Pinosol it is written that the use of the drug during pregnancy and lactation is possible according to the indications. Among the indications are rhinitis, inflammatory diseases of the mucous membranes of the nose, dryness of the mucosa, period after surgery in the nasal cavity. And in the description of the method of use, it is warned that the drug is not intended for long-term use and it is not recommended to abuse Pinosol. Duration of treatment should not exceed 7 days.
That is, if the nose is laid, then it can be dripped with Pinosol, but all warnings should be carried out with special responsibility.
It should be said that, despite the wide range of activities, these drops are not helping everyone. And many future mothers, trying to choose the safest means, are disappointed in Pinosol. But there are those who are very well suited to it - everything is individual here.
However, the peculiarity of the organism during pregnancy is such that its reaction to any of the factors can not be foreseen. And even if before you have never had an allergy to certain components, now it can very well happen. Especially in the composition of Pinosol essential oils, which can easily cause an allergic reaction.
Therefore, if you notice any undesirable manifestations, cancel the treatment with Pinosol and consult a doctor. By the way, it is with an allergic rhinitis that Pinosol is contraindicated.
It should also be noted that it is possible and the use of Pinosol ointment with a cold (or cream), including during pregnancy. But doctors recommend all the same drops (or spray) - they are better spread on the nasal passages.
Pinosol during pregnancy: instructions for use
Pinosol has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, vasoconstrictive, emollient and immunomodulatory action that provides the essential oils of pine, mint, eucalyptus and thymol, which are included in its composition. By the way, the name of this tool (pinus) in Latin means "pine". Vitamin E, which is part of Pinosol, enhances the processes of granulation and epithelialization of tissues.
Pinosol improves blood circulation in the nasal mucosa, reduces mucus secretion, reduces edema and, consequently, better nasal passage and easier breathing. The drug also has a slight analgesic effect.
As we have already said, with allergic rhinitis Pinosol is not used, so is the case with a viral rhinitis. But he can help with a rhinitis of an infectious nature.
Pinosol can be instilled in 1-2 drops 3-4 times a day. At the initial stage of the disease, even more often, but during pregnancy, the frequency and duration of application of Pinosol should be agreed with the doctor. In any case, the duration of treatment with Pinosol should not exceed 7 days.
