I had one myself about 2 weeks ago and used my usual virasorb (similar to zovirax (sp) and was shocked to read on here that your not suppose to use anything. It never even dawned on me. :duh: :duh:

I posted the other day in OT i think about Cymex, im sure its safe to use during pregnancy. To be honest girls, i wouldnt worry too much about products you may have accidently used that are not recommended during pregnancy. The reason a lot of products state this, is that they have never been formally tested on pregnant women, so they cant say its definitely safe. Because what normal pregnant woman is going to volunteer for a trial to test the effects of any product on their unborn child, just in case?! So thats the only reason a product may not specifically say its safe during pregnancy, they are covering their own backsides and err on the side of caution.

I had my first hospital appointment the other day and I asked my doc if Zovirax was safe, and she said it was fine.
