Vaseline / Aquaphor: I recommend using topical petrolatum ointment (vaseline or a brand named aquaphor) this is safe to use and heals scrapes and scratches quickly. Using topical neosporin or betadine increases the risk of developing an allergy later in life. You could also use coconut oil as it has antiseptic properties and will not harm your baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Rest: If you have leg swelling, calf pain and risk factors for DVT such as recent surgery, immobilization, clotting disorder etc, and your doc is concerned enough to rule out a dvt, best would be to avoid mobilizing too much, rest so that the clot, if present , does not move, and you could take an Aspirin daily. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
