Im 5 weeks pregnant with a bad ingrown hair in my bikini area. i popped the pimple to remove the follicle and left a small wound. i sprayed it with disinfecting alcohol spray (rubbing alcohol)... but now im worried the alcohol went into my blood?

I wouldn't: Surface application of sprays/lotions/creams do not penetrate the skin deep enough to achieve any blood level of any significance. Even to an open wound. I would not lose any sleep over this.
