Characteristics of Pregnant Women Who Have a Cold
In the medical world there is actually no disease known as “Colds”. However, it is known that this condition is a disease that occurs as a collection of gas that enters the body and is uneven. This condition will be able to attack anyone, including maybe those of you who are currently pregnant. The characteristics or signs that can be recognized in pregnant women who experience cold symptoms include:

Some of the signs above are things that indicate pregnant women have a cold. This condition of course must be resolved immediately because otherwise it will be quite disturbing. It’s just, conditions pregnancy what you are living at the moment makes medical treatment constrained. Now, with this condition, you may have a desire to overcome this condition in a more traditional way, namely by doing scrapings.
It’s just that the problem is whether pregnant women can do scrapings? Is there an impact? For more in it, let’s look at some of the explanations below.
Can a pregnant woman be scraped?
Although scrapings are proven to be effective in relieving nausea due to colds, pregnant women apply the same method to treat the common cold that they face can be very dangerous. Because this code will be able to have a negative impact, both for the pregnant woman and the fetus she is carrying.
Regarding the problem of whether or not pregnant women can do the scraping, the answer is clearly no. In some cases, pregnant women who still insist on doing scrapings can actually trigger several problems such as premature contradiction, increase the number of bacteria and viruses that lead to infection and increase the chances of a premature birth.
The dangers of doing scrapings while pregnant
The following are some reasons for the negative effects that can be caused by scraping during pregnancy.
This condition is a condition in which the hormone changes due to the repulsive action of the friction activity that occurs on the skin. Scrape is an activity that requires friction on the skin. This friction results in the release of hormones called prostaglandins. Which is this hormone that causes premature contradiction.
Increasing Viruses and Bacteria in the Body
Another danger that can be caused by doing scrapings during pregnancy seems to be that this activity can open the skin pores for a while. It is in this condition that the wind in the body can quickly escape.
But at the same time, this activity can provide an opportunity for viruses and bacteria to be able to enter into the body quickly. Too many viruses and bacteria that enter the body can trigger an infection, which in turn can trigger dangerous diseases to arise in pregnant women.
Increases the Chances of a Baby Born Premature
The last possible danger arises from forcing to do scrapings during period of pregnancy is the increased chance of a baby being born prematurely, if this is done too often.
Too often doing this scraping can trigger frequent contractions as well. So that this condition will cause defects in the fetus that you will deliver later. Your baby will most likely be born prematurely or sooner than the time of normal birth.
Those are some of the things that can be generated from doing scrapings during pregnancy. So you shouldn’t force your will to overcome the cold conditions you feel by doing scrapings.
Switch to a safer way, such as applying telon oil or eucalyptus oil to all parts of the body evenly. This way your body will feel calmer and warmer so that the wind can be expelled properly.
