Rubbing alcohol?: I'm not sure whether you mean an accidental sniff while using this rubbing alcohol, or purposefully breathing it in? If it's the latter, please stop now and get help! you're risking your respiratory system, your brain, your liver, and your life. Inhaled alcohol gets into your bloodstream and is delivered through your placenta. Yes, this could harm your baby including fetal alcohol syndrome.
