Can I use Hexetidine (BACTIDOL®) during pregnancy?

Future mothers are often interested in what medicines to use to treat a sore throat while they are expecting their baby. For the best possible effect, you should start treatment when the first symptoms of a cold appear.

You would do well to remember that you should only take medicine during pregnancy after consulting a doctor. Bactidol® during pregnancy can be prescribed by a doctor to suit each individual case, providing that the potential risk to the baby is negligible. Doctors most often recommend using Hexetidine (BACTIDOL®) as Hexetidinefights infection affecting the mucous membranes in the throat, but is not absorbed into the bloodstream.
