Customer Question
Hello, I am 11 weeks pregnant...
Hello,
I am 11 weeks pregnant. Today I noticed I had a small canker sore on the inside of my cheek. Using a cotton swab I applied a small amount of melaluca oil to the area twice. I also applied a small amount to my gums. I checked online before use if it was okay to apply tea tree oil to canker sores, and it was okay. I didn't think about adding while pregnant. I am concerned now because it says it could cause miscarriage?

Hi

Topical use of tea tree oil has minimum systemic action, still it should be used in pregnancy cautiously as its action on fetus is not well established.

It may reduce the uterine contraction.

There are no reports till date that it has abortificant action. So don't worry for miscarriage. But avoid it during pregnancy and breast feeding.

Thanks

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
