Fluocortolone

Very Low Risk for breastfeeding


Safe. Compatible.
Not risky for breastfeeding or infant.

Uso tópico.

Aunque a fecha de última revisión no hay datos publicados en relación con la lactancia, la escasa absorción a través de la piel hace poco probable el paso de cantidad significativa a leche materna. Incluso los corticoides sistémicos, a dosis habituales, no contraindican la lactancia.

Si se requieren para tratar eczema o dermatosis del pezón conviene elegir el corticoide menos potente, aplicarlo justo al acabar la toma para que se haya reabsorbido antes de la siguiente, en caso necesario retirar restos con una gasa y no utilizar durante más de una semana seguido.

Ha ocurrido intoxicación mineralcorticoidea en un lactante por aplicación continua de un corticoide en el pezón.

Hay que evitar la aplicación sobre el pezón de cremas, geles y otros producto de aplicación local que contengan parafina (aceite mineral) para que el lactante no lo absorba.
