35 weeks pregnant. I put icy hot on my wrist but I washed it off because I read it wasnt good while pregnant. Will my baby be okay still? ):

In brief: Not to worry.

Some icy hot on the wrist that was washed off will not cause any adverse effects on the baby.
Risk is infinitesimally small compared to what pregnant women come into contact in a normal day to day routine.
