Rubbing alcohol is very drying to the skin. I would recommend a hypoallergenic oil, lotion or cream and never use Vaseline, baby oil or mineral oil! They are made from petroleum and are considered to be carcinogenic, which means they may cause cancer. Read your labels. They do not absorb into the skin very well either. Cold-pressed vegetables, nut oils, and seed oils are the best and most widely used. You can use essential oils for fragrance but be careful because some may cause allergic reactions or be bad for nursing/pregnant women.

If you choose to massage with rubbing alcohol it will not harm the fetus since it does not get into the blood stream. If you have any concerns about this, you should consult with your doctor.

As far as application methods, it is usually mixed with a bit of water so it is not full strength. And, it is recommended for swollen, warm and tender feet. It is usually applied with a piece of cotton and rubbed under the feet.

If you rub allot of alcohol on your body you will inhale the fumes which will get in you blood stream and can be detected in a urine sample...There fore in your fetus.

Will hurt you if you accidentally get rubbing alcohol in your needle and inject it will it hurt you?

I wouldn't worry about it. The rubbing alcohol will just go through your bloodstream, and eventually leave. It shouldn't seriously harm you in any way. For example, before nurse's inject needles/vaccines into your bloodstream, notice how they always put rubbing alcohol on your skin to protect against infection? That absorbs into your skin like a sponge, and it doesn't harm you! Surely it's nothing you would have to call poison control about.
