Angina is a common disease that affects people at all stages and ages. Also during pregnancy and breastfeeding. This is a condition that cannot be underestimated, but on the other hand you should not be afraid of it. It does not exclude breastfeeding.

Angina symptoms

A person who has angina for the first time may have trouble assessing the situation. Suspected at bacterial, viral and even fungal infection (angina) should fall in a situation when we observe a sore throat, runny nose, bone fractures and an elevated body temperature (usually high above 38 degrees in combination with chills). There is also pain in the lymph nodes around the neck and lower jaw during strep throat.

Disease it starts suddenly, from a severe sore throat, which makes it difficult to swallow, which is different from a cold, in which the symptoms appear gradually and their nature becomes milder.

Can angina be passed on to a child while feeding?

It is easy to infect another person with Angina. The disease spreads via droplets or less often when using the same cutlery, towels. Because of this, a nursing mother suffering from angina should focus particularly on protecting the baby. Breastfeeding and transmitting antibodies to the baby in this way allows the baby to be protected against unpleasant infection.

You have to remember that the infection has local character. It is not possible for bacteria to pass into breast milk. However, one should realize something else: namely, to pay special attention to hygiene during illness, often washing your hands so as not to transfer bacteria from the hand to the breast and this way to the child.

Homemade ways of angina

You can cope with angina during breastfeeding home ways. It is advisable to eat ice cream (cold allows you to cope with the problem) and avoid hot and especially hot meals (heat promotes the growth of bacteria). Gargling with a sage solution may be helpful.

It is worth supporting the treatment lemon juice, honey and raspberry juice, which allow you to improve immunity and allow you to deal with infection faster.

Antibiotics for angina and breastfeeding

When the infection is advanced, your GP may order you to take antibiotics (for strep throat). It is very important to follow the specialist's instructions and take exactly as much medicine as he has prescribed. The biggest mistake is to stop treatment after the symptoms decrease or disappear.
When breastfeeding, your doctor will usually write:

  • Amoxicillin + clavulanic acid (e.g. Augmentin, Amoksiklav, Amoclan, Forcid, Recute, Taromentin)
  • Amoxicillin (e.g. Duomox, Amotaks, Hiconcil, Ospamox)

All these drugs in slightly excreted in breast milk. They have no effect on its taste and composition. That is why they are considered safe during breastfeeding.

Drugs for angina and breastfeeding

During lactation, women are advised to take the above-mentioned antibiotics (most often: Augumentin, Duomox, Taromentin) and their counterparts. All these specifics contain amoxicillin, which belongs to category B drugs.

Amoxicillin contains Duomax, Amotakas, Ospamox. Both Augumentin, Amoxiclav and Taromentin contain two active substances: amoxicillin and clavulanic acid

This category groups medicines that can be used safely used during breastfeedingexcept in cases where there is a real risk of sensitization associated with the secretion of trace amounts of the drug components from human milk. No harmful information is known about the effect of amoxicillin (the active substance used in antibiotics on angina) on the body of the newborn.

Therefore, if you have strep throat, you can and even should breastfeed, because in this way you pass the baby's antibodies and reduce the risk of passing the infection on to the baby. However, pay attention to hygiene, wash your hands often to avoid passing on infection. When the doctor decides to give the antibiotic, take it exactly in the amount and for the time recommended by the specialist.
