Thanks for writing to us

No it will not affect your baby as you are having third trimester and the period of organogenesis is first trimester.

There can be local irritation and pain for which you can apply local heat with analgesic ointment.

You can take paracetamol if there is redness and inflammation.

Take care

Best wishes
