    I would assume that it’s been used for so long by so many people there is anecdotal evidence but I could be wrong. A bit like thalidomide but in reverse, it wasn’t studied but so many babies were born with deformities the connection was made.

    I could be wrong. I just realised the Australian and American guidelines mean different things. This explains each category really well.

So yeah, dont use it anymore but try not too worry too much lovely xx I worry about my bubba everyday anyway even when I have no reason too. All part of pregancy i guess.Attachment 99915
    Thanks ladies...

    @ gorgeousgeorge can you send me the website for this? Thank you

    I have talked to a dermatologist, she said it also depends if it gets rinsed very well and it doesn't sit on the scalp, i take long showers so i know i rinse it well every time. She said she prescribes it to pregnant women with severe dandruff but only for one week at a time.

    I'll get to talk to our relative (who is my dermatologist when i was young) next week and find out what she says.
