Protargol during pregnancy: a hidden danger
Protargol contraindicated in pregnancy because it contains silver ions, which have the ability to be deposited in the internal organs.In addition, the pregnant woman has no right to appoint myself any treatment - it is fraught with serious complications for herself, and especially for children.
argyrosis - a pigmentation of the skin, mucous membranes, internal organs, brown, black and gray or bluish color associated with the deposition of silver.Argyrosis frequently occurs in workers silver mines, the persons involved in the preparation of silver nitrate, silver lacquer and so on.It may be argyrosis and long-term use of high doses of drugs based on silver, for example, protargola.
argyrosis can be general and local.Total argyrosis shown deposition of silver in the surface layers of the skin and mucous membranes, and internal organs.Local argyrosis - a deposit of silver in some individual organs.
argyrosis the skin characterized by the deposition of silver granules in the sweat glands in the middle layer of the skin (dermis), in the connective tissue capsule of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles in the walls of blood vessels in the skin and in the nerves and musclesraising the hair.In the oral mucosa, stomach, intestine, spleen, lymph nodes situated in the abdominal cavity, the silver particles are mostly found in the walls of blood vessels and connective tissue layer.When argyrosis kidney silver granules deposited in the walls of blood vessels, which is composed of renal tissue, and connective tissue.In the liver, the silver is deposited in the walls of the veins, which extend between the lobes of the liver and in the connective tissue surrounding them.Argyrosis eyes seen the deposition of silver granules in the conjunctiva.The pigmentation of the skin and mucous membranes grows very slowly and usually reaches substantially decades after the beginning of the constant contact with the silver.
Under the microscope study deposits of silver look like a small dark brown or black granules.Such silver granules usually do not cause any reaction from the surrounding tissues and may be reduced or even disappear from the walls of the capillaries due to release discharge in women when there is cause for concern their urine or sweat.But silver deposits in the connective tissue remain for life.Argyrosis may be asymptomatic, but sometimes there are signs of chronic intoxication with silver salts.
Chronic intoxication silver salts takes place as quickly.Perhaps the decrease in visual acuity, point inclusions in the lens, change the color of the pupil.May appear inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract, liver enlargement and tenderness, interstitial nephritis (inflammation of the connective tissue, which is the frame of the kidneys).
Pregnancy and Protargolum
It is known that during pregnancy all the internal organs, women bear a double burden.But the biggest load in the liver and kidneys, as these bodies are removed from the body all the toxins and metabolic products.In the liver, these substances are destroyed to form a neutral metabolic products (metabolites), and then excreted in the bile or in the gastro-intestinal tract or absorbed back into the blood and then excreted through the kidneys.And since the body has to be cleaned from a very large number of products, liver and kidneys of pregnant women work in a large voltage.
If during pregnancy a woman has to deal with salts of heavy metals (including silver), these salts are starting to linger in the body (liver and kidneys are simply unable to withdraw all toxic products) and deposited in the tissues.
Now imagine that a pregnant woman has picked up and runny nose on your own risk decided treated protargola Protargol - Pharmacy survivor (because not everyone knows about the properties of the drug).Perhaps she would resort to such treatment, and more than once (and perhaps in the past often used Protargolum), for pregnant women reduced immunity Immunity - the types and characteristics of children in adult and they are prone to colds, including runny nose.The reaction in this case can be unpredictable, as it depends on many factors: the frequency and duration of protargola currently and in the past, from hereditary characteristics and diseases of the liver and kidneys, and so on.It is possible (in most cases just so happens) Protargolum not cause harm to the woman, but it is possible that it will have some symptoms of intoxication argyrosis and even silver.
During pregnancy, the effect of any, even the most secure of the drug, is unpredictable.That is why a woman should not accept anything and not to conduct any treatment (including folk) without talking to your doctor.
