What is a hexicon?
This drug is a gynecological vaginal suppository, which is used to prevent and treat all kinds of genital diseases in parturient women. These candles got their spread, because they have a local effect, not penetrating the blood of the nursing mother. This is really important, since the baby receives all the nutrients from milk alone. Most often, candles are used, although Gexinkon still exists in the form of a solution, as well as a gel for external use.
The suppository contains a powerful antiseptic - chlorhexidine. It extends to most gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and several types of protozoa. However, there are microorganisms that he can not destroy: acid-fast microbes, fungi, bacterial spores, viruses. Hexicon also does not fight lactobacilli, and therefore does not injure the normal microflora of the vagina and works only with infectious agents.

Due to constant lack of sleep, stress, changes in nutrition, hormonal adjustment and other causes, young mothers often have thrush after delivery, which causes a lot of unpleasant sensations, such as severe itching, burning, redness, curdiness.
