Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Both liquid paraffin and Avil were taken in very small doses .
That is not likely to cause any harm to the baby.
If the anomaly scan is normal, you can be rest assured that the baby would be fine.
Please don't worry about very small occasional doses of medicines taken.
However, In future, please avoid taking any medications without consulting your gynecologist first.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further
