Patient : Hi, I have been using undiluted tea tree oil on my face for blemishes daily (applied topically with a cotton tip 2-3 times a day) for quite some time now. I am also 6 weeks pregnant and only found out today that it should not be used during pregnancy. Could this have any affect on my baby and if so what?? Obviously I will discontinue use from now on, but could I have caused any possible damage?
Freaking out a little now.
