Pregnancy (Definition)

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

15 weeks pregnant. Used lysol cleaning wipes to clean bathrooms. No gloves. Had room fan on, and no windows. Is this ok? Wipes also contain peroxide.

15 weeks pregnant. Used lysol cleaning wipes to clean bathrooms. No gloves. Had room fan on, and no windows. Is this ok? Wipes also contain peroxide.

Cleaning products: Lysol wipes are safe and peroxide used topically is safe as well, I'm not aware of any pregnancy warnings. The fan is helpful and if there are fumes, the window should be open.

There are however lots of natural cleaning solutions that you can make yourself that would be safer. ...Read more

I am about 5 weeks pregnant and just did quite a bit of cleaning (without gloves or a mask) with lysol disinfectant wipes. Should I be worried?

No: Lysol disinfectant is a safe product, even if you did a lot of cleaning! . It may cause eye irritation if you get some in your eyes, and possible skin irritation if you have sensitive skin. There are no known cancer causing ingredients and no known dangers if inhaled to the degree you would be exposed while cleaning, so you and your baby will be fine. Wear gloves if you have skin irritation tho'! ...Read more

I am 37 weeks pregnant and just cleaned the kitchen with Lysol and paper towels and completely forgot to wear gloves. How bad is that for the baby?

It's fine: Unless the fumes are strong enough to make you pass out, you should be fine. No evidence that using Lysol to clean is harmful and your skin is a good barrier against most cleaning solutions. ...Read more

I have used both Lysol & Clorox wipes for cleaning & on body & skin daily for years. Am I @risk for getting cancer?

Cleaned flat stove top off with lysol wipe after spilling juice of raw meat. Cooked on it and forgot to wash lysol off. Could smell. Will fumes hurt?

No: At that small amount of exposure I would not be concerned especially if cooking in kitchen and not in any enclosed space. If any eye, nose, throat, chest irritation that does not resolve in 1-2 hours or gets worse, see your doctor. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read more

If often wonder if I use lysol disinfectant wipes or some time of clorox cleaning spray, if I wash my hand after can I finger food? Safely

Sounds safe...: It is generally safe to eat with one's hands after his hands are washed, regardless of what household cleaner he was using prior to washing his hands. If worried, just wear gloves next time when doing household cleaning. ...Read more

Is lysol okay to use when cleaning up after HFMD?

Is lysol okay to use when cleaning up after HFMD?

Yes: Lysol is a perfectly good agent to eradicate the virus that causes hand/foot/mouth disease. The bigger trick is to get all the surfaces that a child may have touched covered in your cleaning regimen. Good luck! Take a break now and then and sit and cuddle and read a book to your sick child. The bathtub will still be there when you're done! ...Read more

My idiot husband gave the kids Lysol wipes 6&3 will it harm them? Because of the chemicals on it.

My idiot husband gave the kids Lysol wipes 6&3 will it harm them? Because of the chemicals on it.

Brief exposure is ok: If only on skin surfaces, brief exposures are ok, but it's best to use wipes made for skin. There are probably 5 different kids of Lysol wipes, so one would have to read the labels to see what's in them. The most common wipes likely have alcohol, similar to any hand sanitizer gel. Wipes made for skin will likely have gentler ingredients or gentler amounts of the ingredients. Diaper wipes are ok. ...Read more

I clean and lysol my home but I still smell mildew but my home is clean no wet cloths or nothing. Is this smell harmful to me and my kids?

Mildew: It is possible that you still have mold in your house, for example you, if you have an attic you may have mold up there. If you have paneling you can have behind the wood. If you've ever been flooded you may have mold in the basement. I believe you need to look for possible mold sources in your home. Professional help may be needed. ...Read more

I was cleaning my toilet with lysol blue cleaning liquid and I guess from the smell of it I got nauseated with this stuff give me a headache?

It may: Some noxious smells may trigger a headache. Make sure you have adequate ventilation when using any cleaning products. Use of a vent fan in the bathroom may be helpful. If you are sensitive to a product then avoid its use. If your symptoms persist then seek immediate medical treatment. ...Read more

Will Lysol wipes eliminate lice and nits on a bike helmet?

Will Lysol wipes eliminate lice and nits on a bike helmet?

Maybe. Maybe not.: One can just use a big vacuum cleaner with a small brush attachment, and then brush and vacuum the helmet. Lice are little bugs, and they will get sucked up. Nits are glued to hairs, so there won't be a free nit in a helmet. Any nit will still be glued to a hair, which will get sucked up. Lysol is not needed. ...Read more

Nuvaring fell out onto floor. Rinsed it twice with soap and water and then wiped with a Clorox/Lysol disinfecting wipe. Will it lose effectiveness?

Nuvaring fell out onto floor. Rinsed it twice with soap and water and then wiped with a Clorox/Lysol disinfecting wipe. Will it lose effectiveness?

Uncertain effect: Nuvaring should not be falling out when in the vagina. Ask your doctor to check and verify that you are placing it correctly. It can be out of the vagina for up to three hours. Washing with soap and water is safe. I'm not sure what the effect of washing it with Lysol would be though. That could affect the ability of hormones to be released the safest thing to do is to dispose of it and place anothcheck and verify that you are placing it correctly.

I put Lysol spray on my hands more than once to get good clean hands now my finger tips are itching what could be the cause?!

I put Lysol spray on my hands more than once to get good clean hands now my finger tips are itching what could be the cause?!

Maybe overcleaning: People don't normally spray Lysol on their hands except in unusual circumstances. Overuse of Lysol (or any disinfectant) on skin can lead to itchy, irritated skin. Of course, there are other causes of skin itching. One should reassess her situation and ask why Lysol spray is needed (it is almost never needed) for cleaning hands. ...Read more

Does clorox wipes or lysol spray help or kill HIV or hep c, b?

Does clorox wipes or lysol spray help or kill HIV or hep c, b?

Maybe but no studies: Probably, but the information from osha about managing blood born pathogens does not include these products for cleaning. Professional lysol is appropriate for hep a, but not listed for b/c or hiv. The appropriate approach is to use bleach, but not as wipes, instead as a bleach solution. And use gloves and other personal protection devices. Here is the link from osha: http://1.Usa. Gov/mgjiw5. ...Read more

Can you kill herpes simplex virus by anti bacterial wipes or wet ones after an hour 2 after an encounter? I know lysol does

Don't count on it: Have you been exposed? Herpes 1 or 2? The only sure way to avoid herpes is to avoid contact. Possibly oral Acyclovir or valcyclovir will reduce infection rate significantly. Condoms help but are not completely protective. The traditional solution to this problem is to find the right partner and limit sex exclusively to this one person forever. Magic wipes are not the answer. Lysol will not help yo. ...Read more
