Can erythromycin topical solution be used for acne while pregnant? Doctors say yes, but I see it’s given a “B”. Will this reach the baby?

Can erythromycin topical solution be used for acne while pregnant? Doctors say yes, but I see it’s given a “B”. Will this reach the baby?  Are the studies reliable?  Is there evidence on pregnant women who have taken this or is opinion only based on animal studies?  Will some doctors prescribe but others not?  Are there short or long term risks for the baby?
