Glycyrrhizinic acid derivative that is extracted from the root of licorice.
Anti-inflammatory effect when topically applied (skin, mouth, throat and rectum).
At latest update no published data on excretion into breast milk were found.
It locally enhances the activity of hydrocortisone by inactivating a cortisol inhibiting enzyme, which can cause toxicity after systemic administration (see info on Licorice).
It is unknown the level of absorption after dermal and oral rinses or application, with a reported case of systemic toxicity following topical use. Hence, it is not recommended a prolonged use of this product during lactation.
It can cause contact dermatitis.
Avoid applying it on the breast, otherwise, clean it thoroughly before breastfeeding.
We do not have alternatives for Enoxolone.
Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM´s pediatricians and pharmacists, and are based on updated scientific publications.
