Hello doctor, 5 days before I delivered a boy baby. Normal delivery. I was normal for past 3 days. From yesterday my legs get swelled. From the day of delivery I started drinking mother's Horlicks. Will it create swelling? Mother Horlicks will increase/decrease BP???

That swelling is caused by an excess amount of fluid remaining in the body tissue after childbirth. It may come to normal with on one or two weeks of delivery. It is not caused by the Mothers Horlicks. It usually won't have affect on the BP. Hope this helps. Take Care
