Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Soframycin is an antibiotic ointment for only topical use for superficial wounds. You can safely use it during pregnancy as it is minimally absorbed into the blood and thus does not affect the fetal growth or development.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
