    Default Accidentally got Bactrim (antibiotic) in eye...

    So, I was just getting DS to take his Bactrim (for tonsillitis) and he accidentally squirted 3mls straight into my eyes.

    I washed it out straight away - and then had quick google but couldn't find much info - except that pregnant people should not use it. I'm 24 weeks and a worry wart!

    Does anyone know if it's bad to get in your eyes and if that amount ,washed straight out, is going to get into my system?

    I'm thinking not, but just thought I would put it out there in case someone had some actual answers.

    Thanks :-)

    As long as you washed it out you would have absorbed an absolute minute amount, if any at all. Even taking a whole dose orally I doubt would affect the baby, it would have multiple amounts over a period of time to have any effects. I wouldn't worry about it at all

    Wouldn't be worried at all pregnancy-wise, but how is your eye?

    A tad sore! The liquid hit them pretty hard :-)
