Hello Cut Sefhia,
Thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com Community
Hot in cream is an analgesic cream that works to relieve symptoms of fatigue, aches, and muscle aches. This drug is used for external use. The use of analgesic creams in pregnant women does not have a direct impact on the fetus, but can cause side effects to the mother such as allergic skin reactions and burning sensations. Hot in cream itself contains menthol, gandapura oil, eucaliptus oil, pine oil, and lemongrass oil. Analgesic creams should not be ingested by pregnant women if they contain salicylates. If this product contains salicylates and you are ingested in large quantities it can be digested and affect the fetus. However, if there are no ingredients that are harmful to the fetus, then it doesn't matter. We still recommend that you consult a gynecologist to confirm your content especially if you have complaints such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.
Thank you and hope it helps.
