A member asked:

Is neosporin or polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) safe to use for cuts and scrapes in pregnancy? if not, an alternative ointment?

Specializes in General Practice

Cuts and Scrapes: Antibiotics are used for infections. These products you mention are safe in pregnancy, but are they necessary for just simple cuts and scrapes? Probably not. Good cleaning with clean bandages may be all you need for an uninfected cut.
