using zz ointment while pregnant

Post by elisedyce »

HI,

I'm hoping to hear from anyone who may have treated themselves with zz cream whilst pregnant.
I have had a flare up of rosacea during my pregnancy and am wanting to treat myself again but am worried it may have an affect on my baby. I have read some posts that it is safe to use but am wanting some more reassurance.

Has anyone used it while pregnant with no ill effects for their child??

Thanks kindly :?:

*I am not a doctor
*I do not know all of the ingredients in zz cream (only the people affiliated with it know).

But...

sulphur is pretty safe as long as it is used in normal doses.
same thing with zinc oxide (it's in sunscreen and pregnant women use sunscreen). etc. As long as you are not using it on your whole body, you should be okay.

So my opinion is,...
yes i think it is safe as long as you are using a SMALL amount.

But then again, I do not know the secret ingredients.
=)

Hey, I was reading back into the forum, and on one of the pages (probably page 5 or something...)

Walter replied and said that ZZ cream was the only one tested, and it is safe to use during pregnancy.

However, the other demodex solutions products have not been tested so it is best to not use them.

:)
