Q&A: Is It Safe To Treat A Toenail Fungus While You're Pregnant?

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

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.
