Patient : Hi please help,
I'm on holiday in the Carribbean and I am 8 weeks pregnant with piles. before I left home I contacted my GP to make sure I could use Proctosedyl ointment and she said this was fine. however I have just searched the web and found out that I may have caused fetal malformation in doing so. please advise if this is true or if I can continue with the treatment. I have used it for the last 2 weeks.
