    Default I used nit shampoo while pregnant :/

    Few months back my son had a big problem with nits - everytime I got them out he'd come back from daycare with more. Eventually I got them myself. He's now pulled out of daycare and hasn't had nits but this morning I did one last shampoo and then comb just to be double sure.

    As i read the warning "do not use while pregnant or breast feeding or on babies under 6 months unless otherwise instructed by your GP" It reminded me - I used kp24 on myself when I was pregnant, but before I knew I was pregnant. I would have been about 4 weeks along, I did a double shampoo of my own hair as I had found baby lice, and then few days later/a week later I found out I was pregnant

    Will this have harmed my baby? Should I tell the doctor? Has
    Anyone else done this and had any problems? I'm really worried now !

    There really isn't anything you can do about it now, so there is no point stressing over it.

    I wouldnt stress too much, let the GP know, but i dont imagine a lot would get into the blood ****** and across the placenta. Its probably that they just dont know if there are negative effects on the foetus like a lot of medications
