Use in pregnancy

Pregnancy and lactation

There is a lack of definitive evidence of safety of Germoloids products in human pregnancy and lactation. However, lidocaine hydrochloride and zinc oxide have been in wide use for many years without apparent ill consequence.

Germoloids Ointment, Germoloids Cream and Germoloids Suppositories are suitable for use by pregnant or breast-feeding women, provided caution is exercised and the patient follows the directions for use.

Germoloids HC Spray contains Hydrocortisone and is therefore not suitable for use during pregnancy or while breast feeding.
