Prevent and treat the symptoms of spring allergy during pregnancy

The first advice that the pregnant woman should follow is to avoid areas with a lot of vegetation or those to which she is more sensitive, whether they are poplar groves or arizonic zones. Close windows on windy days and going outside with a mask is also recommended.

Although many medications are not recommended during pregnancy, sometimes the symptoms that cause certain diseases are more harmful than the medication itself. Therefore, symptoms of spring allergy such as allergic rhinitis, itchy eyes, sneezing, dry cough or asthma may be treated during pregnancy to prevent discomfort to the woman. - Asthma

: in this case, choking, lack of oxygen and feeling of suffocation causes the baby to receive less oxygen, in such a way that doctors allow the asthmatic woman to be treated with bronchodilators. -Antihistamines

: they are not forbidden for pregnant women during pregnancy, however, it is advisable to ask which is the most appropriate at this stage and in what proportion. -Mucolytics

: the usual ones should not be used since in some cases their use has been related to cases of fetal death, however, again the gynecologist may prescribe the most appropriate and least harmful. You can also use more home remedies such as seawater or saline water. -Eye drops

: it is also viable to use drugs that help to relieve the itching, stinging and redness of the eyes. An allergic crisis or an asthma attack can cause discomfort in the pregnant woman and raise her level of stress and fatigue, something that can harm the baby, for that reason the specialists recommend the pharmacological treatment in these cases.
