Dear Doctor, I was testing my soaps with Phenolphthalein
Patient :Dear Doctor,
I was testing my soaps with Phenolphthalein without wearing any glove. I pour the Phenolphthalein too quicky and about 3ml of Phenolphthalein spilled on to my hand, i did not wash it immediately. I only was it an hour later. I plan to get pregnant in 3 years time, I would like to know how long does Phenolphthalein stay in my body? will it cause birth defect?
