Question: My son is 45 days old infant. He is on breastfeeding. Recently, I had cracked nipples so my gynecologist prescribed MEBO to apply. I normally apply and wash off before breastfeeding. Today, I applied at 5am and fed him at 7pm. I forgot to wash or wipe it. Is it harmful for baby? He looks fine and playing at the moment

Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for asking on Ask A Doctor platform

I have gone through the query and do understand your concern.
The MEBO cream is made of herbal and edible oil/wax and other ingredients.The amount of intake is also not high.
You need not to worry because of herbal content and that too in very little amount.
I won't get overly worried if baby is otherwise active, playful and taking feeds well.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
