Review about Amoxicillin

Amoxicillin will help nursing mums, without  harm for the children

A good result. Nursing mums  can also use it.

This group of antibiotics often causes allergic reactions.

After childbirth female body needs recovery. During this period immunity decreases. I’m tired from all the ills in the first months of my daughter”s life. And I do not want very much to be ill together with my baby. Not all husbands are able at this time to replace the mother to baby. And give “the poor woman quietly to be ill”.

So. Due to constant illness, it has intensified my herpes virus. Just some bubbles were replaced another bubbles. Consequences for the child may be at best a windmill. In the worst case, it could end up festering sore throat. Very scary.

I was ashamed to go out street and talk with other mums. I walked alone with a stroller, to avoid to infect the other children.

So. Seeing all my suffering, the pediatrician told me to drink these antibiotics. She said that they were allowed in the period of lactation. However, for insurance, the doctor prescribed to give child “Linex”. But I gave nothing. Daughter did not responded to using this drug by me. After this course, herpes did not bothers me.
