Question pregnant with hands swelling

Hi I am 4 months pregnant and went to the beach last May 1. While swimming my right thumb accidentally got in contact with a coral (not sure if it's sea urchin) and gave me 1 tiny cut and 3 shallow pierces. I removed the spikes. I haven't recognized of what coral was that and the wound is just small so I didn't bother having a first aid.

Days passed by and it starts swelling and is very itchy. Right now, the swelling starts to spread on the back of my palm and one fluid-filled sac on my thumb.

I am worried that it might affect my baby. Any advice please?

Re: pregnant with hands swelling

It sounds like an allergic reaction, but if pain and redness occur with the swelling, an infection may be starting. I would get it checked just to be sure. It shouldn't hurt the baby, and it can be treated, but of course medications have to be slected carefully during pregnancy, so I would see your Dr.
