Class C face wash use while pregnant
avatar
lbush posted:
I am 18 weeks pregnant & have been using sulfacetamide sodium & sulfur face wash (Sumadan) since the before I conceived. I am under the care of a dermatologist who prescribed the medicine knowing I was trying to get pregnant. She was not concerned about it's use while pregnant, but did not explain to me that it was in fact a Class C drug. I just recently discovered it was categorized that way & feel pretty stupid for blindly trusting my derm. I have discontinued use. Should I be concerned about my baby? What are the potential risks to the baby? Any guidance would be appreciated!!
