Amorolfine

Very Low Risk for breastfeeding


Safe. Compatible.
Not risky for breastfeeding or infant.

Antifungal for topical use.

At latest update no published data on excretion into breast milk were found.

Its negligible systemic absorption through skin or nails (Roncari 1992) make it unlikely that it will transfer into breastmilk in significant amounts (AEMPS 2018, MHRA 2011).

It has been described sporadic neonatal use without observing side effects (Fu 2013).

It is a safe and compatible product during lactation (AEMPS 2018, MHRA 2011).

We do not have alternatives for Amorolfine since it is relatively safe.
