Hi, I am 23 Year female. I had DNC last year in 5th month of pregnancy. I had pus cells in the first month, used anti -biotics at that time. Now, i have been confirmed pregnancy. Again i have 1-2 PUS CELLS, & ESR is HIGH. I am having dry cough also now.
What could be the reason? Is it due to infections transmitted in sex with my husband? How should i take medication?
1-2 pus cells in urine is no cause for concern as if it is more than 10 pus cells/high power field,it is of consequence.

My daughter got 104F fever yesterday. I gave crocin suspension but within 3-4 hours the fever is coming back to 101-102F. Please advise. I checked with doctor and he said viral infection.
Usually only paracetamol is given for viral and supportive treatment is given in addition such as proper diet and plenty of water for the child and anti-cough(depending whether the child has sputum or not)and something for nose as well,whether child has runny nose or not.
Antibiotic is usually prescribed along with it so that child does not get any other infection. I think it should already have been prescribed to you.
Can you write what prescription was given? ... Read Full Answer
