Re: Is it safe to treat a toenail fungus while you're pregnant?

The Bump Expert

Yes, over-the-counter ointments made to treat toenail fungus are considered safe to use during pregnancy. Be sure to follow the instructions that come with the cream. If you're taking anything orally, run it past your doctor first.

Q&A: Is it safe to treat a toenail fungus while you're pregnant?

The cream from what I know is safe but I don't know about the pills. You didn't mention what kind of Toenail fungus treatment do you follow so I would advice you to see a dermatologist or ask your doctor about this. The next time you will visit your doctor don't forget to ask him about this because is better to prevent than to "repair".

It is both safe and also recommended to treat the toenail fungus when you are pregnant. There are a lot of treatments like Tri Luma Cream which are very good for this kind of fungus and doesn't influence your pregnancy at all.
