Hi everyone! I was hoping you could help me. I am currently TTC and my Dr. has prescribed Metrogel --.75% twice a day (topical) for my face. I apparently have peri-oral dermatitis. (Just what I need right now!) Anyway, I tried the Metrogel (even though I had reservations--it is a class B like many others, though). I seem to get nauseous after using the gel. I have been told (by the manufacturer--yes, I called them
) that this is a known side effect and was asked to give an adverse reaction report. I haven't yet, however, and my Dr. wants me to continue with it. He feels I am just "nervous" about using it. I would like him to give me a prescription for topical Erythromycin, as I feel this would be safer. I don't know if it would work, though. I would like your advice on either of these medications. Have any of you used these medications? Have you or your baby had any problems?
Thanks for taking the time to read this!!
