Thrush, which is a fun­gal dis­ease of the gen­i­tal organs, is not only unpleas­ant, but also quite unsafe, espe­cial­ly when it comes to a preg­nant woman. How­ev­er, mod­ern med­i­cine can be eas­i­ly elim­i­nat­ed with appro­pri­ate treat­ment that does absolute­ly no harm to your baby.

Can­didi­a­sis (thrush) is an infec­tious dis­ease caused by fun­gi of the genus Can­di­da (yeast-like). Vit­a­min defi­cien­cy, weak­ened immu­ni­ty, and endocrine dis­eases can con­tribute to its occur­rence. The main signs of the dis­ease are red­ness and swelling of the gen­i­tal organs (mucous mem­branes). In addi­tion, there are cur­dled dis­charge, sur­face ero­sion (the integri­ty of the mucous mem­branes is bro­ken), as well as films. The woman will also be wor­ried about severe itch­ing. This diag­no­sis is con­firmed by the results of a smear — the so-called bac­te­ri­o­log­i­cal cul­ture. There is also an even more accu­rate diag­nos­tic method — the PCR method (the pres­ence of DNA of path­o­gen­ic fun­gi is deter­mined in the blood).

Thrush often occurs in preg­nant women, because dur­ing this peri­od the nat­ur­al lev­el of hor­mones ris­es and the vagi­nal microflo­ra changes (the envi­ron­ment acquires increased acid­i­ty, due to which a huge num­ber of leuko­cytes mul­ti­ply in it). This dis­ease can­not be ignored, because it can even­tu­al­ly affect the organs of the fetus (res­pi­ra­to­ry tract, skin and mucous mem­branes). In an infect­ed child, you can see a white coat­ing in the mouth.

Of course, treat­ment should take place under med­ical super­vi­sion. The scheme includes local and gen­er­al treat­ment. Local means the use of creams, vagi­nal tablets, sup­pos­i­to­ries. For exam­ple, borax with glyc­erin is suit­able even for ear­ly treat­ment — up to 12 weeks. Gen­er­al refers to the intake of spe­cial med­i­cines, for­ti­fy­ing drugs and diet. Not all anti­fun­gal drugs can be tak­en by preg­nant women, because they are high­ly tox­ic. Valid options are pima­fucin and nys­tatin. As for gen­er­al strength­en­ing drugs, here often the choice falls on vit­a­min-min­er­al com­plex­es.

It is also impor­tant to fol­low a spe­cial diet — flour, sweet, fried and spicy dish­es should be exclud­ed from the diet. But sour-milk dish­es should be includ­ed in the menu with­out fail — this will help nor­mal­ize the intesti­nal microflo­ra.
