Athlete's Foot Treatment Safe in Pregnancy?

Hi all, I have developed athlete's foot and I am currently 19 weeks pregnant. I have been to one pharmacy and asked if I can take anything for it and they just said in a very rude and unhelpful manor go to your doctors. Thanks for that!! I am having to have so much time off work because of this pregnancy already I don't really want to have to have more time off as well.So I was wondering if any of you have been able to treat it while pregnant? And if so what did you use? Thank you Smile

I bought a Boots own athletes foot treatment at the weekend. It says on the box that its fine for people who are pregnant or breast feeding.

I know what you mean about wanting to minimise additional time off work for appointments!

I had to go to the doctor too,because of the same response from th3 pharmacy.
The doctors have given me dactorcourt cream.
