After pregnancy, many women find that their skin is getting worse than before, for example, their faces are yellow and dull, and the whole person looks very listless. This situation is mostly related to qi and blood, so it is suggested that pregnant women can improve skin problems by eating foods that harmonize qi and blood. So what should pregnant women eat when their faces turn yellow?
The yellow complexion of pregnant women may be caused by insufficient qi and blood. In this case, you can eat more blood-enriching foods such as jujube, donkey-hide gelatin and pig liver to supplement and adjust. It may also be caused by cold or damp in the body, so it is necessary to go to the hospital to seek professional treatment at this time, so as not to affect fetal development.
In addition, you need to observe whether you have other symptoms besides yellow face. For example, whether there is drowsiness, fatigue, loss of appetite, yellowing of skin and mucous membranes, or aggravation after activities or fatigue. If this kind of symptoms appear, it is recommended to check the blood system first, for example, check the blood routine to see if the complexion is yellow due to anemia during pregnancy, and also check the liver and kidney function to rule out cholestasis during pregnancy or biliary tract disease during pregnancy.
If the complexion is yellow due to anemia during pregnancy, it can be treated to correct anemia and improved through food and medicine. Cholestasis during pregnancy should be actively treated, because it is easy to endanger the safety of fetus in utero.
