Health Remedies - Puerperal Fever

Product Categories

Puerperal fever, also called childbed fever, is a bacterial infection of the female genital tract following childbirth or abortion. It is a serious form of bacterial septicemia and is usually attributable to unsanitary conditions. It is characterized by a fever greater than 38░C arising in a mother in the first 14 days after childbirth. Other symptoms include flu-like symptoms (shivering, chills, malaise, loss of appetite, body aches etc.), abdominal pain, foul-smelling vaginal (lochial) discharge and abnormal vaginal bleeding. Puerperal fever is now rare due to improved hygiene during delivery.
