How is thrush in pregnancy

In pregnant women, candidiasis is more common due to increasing levels of female sex hormones (this causes a change in vaginal flora and promotes the growth of pathogenic fungi). During pregnancy, the chemical environment in the vagina becomes more acidic, and immunity declines, resulting in leukocyte proliferation - all this favors the growth and development of the fungus Candida.

Fungal infection can cause inflammatory diseases of the internal organs of women, giving rise to adhesions (proliferation of connective tissue at the site of inflammation). Adhesions cause pain, which intensified on large stages of pregnancy due to the stretching of the walls of the uterus. Adhesions in the internal female reproductive organs can cause miscarriage Miscarriage - why you lose the most precious thing?  Miscarriage - why you lose the most precious thing?

Thrush should be treated, otherwise the infection may move to the fetus, affecting his organs and systems. Usually, the infection affects the umbilical cord, skin, oral mucosa and respiratory tract. Sometimes the fungus spreads to a large number of tissues, and it can even lead to death of the fetus. The child may also become infected with thrush, passing through the birth canal of the mother. Such a child can see bubbles on the tongue or whitish plaque on the gums.

 The course of treatment can be extended.

There is evidence that effective use Terzhinan together with enzymes that help cleanse the vaginal walls of the destroyed tissue, small pustules and so on. In particular, for this purpose used a proteolytic (protein-dissolving substance) enzyme imozimaza prolonged (longer, up to 3-5 days) actions. Available imozimaza as a solution for topical use, it has no toxic, irritant, enhances the action of antibiotics. It dissolves and removes dead tissue, fluid, inflammation occurs when the effect of reducing inflammation, swelling of tissues, stimulates regenerative processes.
