Hi, certainly there are molecules containing mercury used in medicine. Also, it is used in homeopathy. Ammoniated mercury is used to treat skin diseases such as impetigo, psoriasis, minor skin infections, and other. It is available without a prescription. It is made in form of ointment, and should not be taken in case of allergy to any ingredient. Pregnant women should not take any mercury product, as it could come in contact with fetus. Breast-feeding women are also supposed to avoid it, since there are not enough evidences to determine whether it is harmful or not.
