Dear Practo user, It is not necessary all those who are exposed to local Tretin cream will land up in having babies with birth defects. There is no increased risk of major congenital malformations when compared to those who are not exposed to the cream.

Hello. Tretin is teratogenic. It means, it can cause abnormalities in the child. It is advisable to abort this pregnancy.
