... a yeast infection. Now I read that it may cause birth defects. Can someone please help me? Does anyone know someone who also used this cream and their baby was fine?
You are just using this on outer skin areas that are small, correct? As long as you are not using this intravaginally or over large areas, you should not absorb enough systemically to cause any problems. Be sure not to cover with any bandages or anything occlusive to keep you from absoring too much. If you were to apply this to a very large area you might absorb enough to be problematic but using topically to small areas should be ok. I used some sort of antifungal cream when I was pregnant with both my children. I dont remember what kind though. I was only allowed to use it on these patches on the insides of my thighs that were Candida (or yeast). I was not allowed to put any medicine inside my vagina. My kids were unaffected by the cream used topically.
