Using Altabax on Your Child While You Are Pregnant
The most likely scenario in which a pregnant woman would be exposed to Altabax
is while applying the medication to a young child (impetigo
is common in young children). While this is not thought to pose any serious risks, you might decide to use gloves when applying the ointment if you are especially concerned. At the very least, make sure to wash your hands after applying the medication.
If you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, let your healthcare provider know. Your healthcare provider will consider the benefits and risks of using Altabax during pregnancy before making a recommendation in your particular situation.
