Podiatric Tx that harm pregnant/nursing mothers and unborn kids
I'm a podiatry student and am curious to learn more about which podiatric treatments may harm pregnant mothers / unborn foetus' / breastfed children. Will you help me collect some information regarding this subject?
Re: Podiatric Tx that harm pregnant/nursing mothers and unborn kids
66% Salycilic acid 100% monochloroacetic acid = very potent chemical applied to the skin for 5 days.
Chemicals create a macreated area of up to 50mm diameter and 10mm deep.
The lymphatic system becomes involved this transferral of particulate matter into lymph vessels (inflammatory respones the battle between the virus and the chemicals). Viral particles and chemical could be crossed from mother to fetus.
(Way out on a limb now - with the reaction of chemicals and lymphatic system it may cause a chain reaction and cause a misscarrage) so why take the risk.
In a nursing mother again the lymphaitc system may change the mothers milk.
That is why I wait until mother has had her baby and finished with breast feeding.
I have wart specimens that are still viable 5 years after removing them from the plantar surface of feet.
