I have to admit I never thought of this, although I should have done. It is common for children to ingest topical treatments from the mothers with the most common one being steroids. It is just pure co-incidence that I have not needed much of my steroid cream since I got my pup.
This is good to know. I'm on progesterone cream and sometimes Barnum has tried to lick my forearms after I've applied it. I've shooed him away. I wash my hands thoroughly after applying the cream. I wonder why you need to wear gloves if you wash your hands? Washing isn't good enough?
I think you should be really quite careful with a lot of prescription creams you rub on your skin. Quite a few times I've had to use a skin cancer cream which made me feel so bloody awfully rotten that I shudder to think what could happen if a dog happened to injest it.
I agree totally, that is why I thought it appropriate to post this article. I just never had given any thought to my cream since I put it on at night and rub it on my chest because I always wear something to sleep in:wink:, but I know several women who rub hormonal creams on their arms and they do have dogs so I've let them know about this.
