Is arnica gel or ointment safe during pregnancy for back pain?? I'm 5 month pregnant. Thank you

Arnica is considered homeopathic therapy, and there is not much (if any?) reliable scientific data; and without good data, physicians can't safely recommend its use in pregnancy. The FDA considers pure arnica unsafe. Since unregulated, concentration varies. ...Read more

Using KY gel makes me feel worse it burns. Is very hard to have sex during my pregnancy. Very dry vegina and can't use the gel?

Gel sensitivity: Ky gel is a water/ glycerine lubricant. There are cases where there is sensitivity to one of the components of the jelly. Switching to astroglide may be the answer, since the base is xylitol, which produces less reaction in some people. However, don't forget that this problem may be hormonally related and ought to resolve with the termination of pregnancy (i.e. Birth). ...Read more

Can I use anti histamine Fenistil gel (Dimethindene Maleate) for a bite while I'm in very early pregnancy?

Can I use anti histamine Fenistil gel (Dimethindene Maleate) for a bite while I'm in very early pregnancy?

No major risk: Most antihistamines are considered safe for pregnancy (Category B) nowadays although I am not familiar with the product you are using. I do not expect any measurable absorption from the topical application of an antihistamine on the skin and thus it would be extremely unlikely that even if a trace of it gets to the fetus. A hydrocortisone cream would work better on an itchy insect bite. ...Read more
