Have cut on my face. Am pregnant. Can I use Betadine?

I am 16 weeks pregnant and just got a cut on my face. (my 3 year old nephew scratched me and made me bleed ) I only have Betadine ointment (topical solution I put on with a q-tip) in my house and was wondering if I could use that. When I look online I see pregnancy issues but I m not sure if it s the Betadine I m using.

Welcome to HCm,
Nothing to worry.
Local application of Betadene or any antibiotic cream or lotion has no effect on your pregnancy.
Try to avoid taking antibiotic orally for cut.
Ok and bye.
