Policresulen

Very Low Risk for breastfeeding


Safe. Compatible.
Not risky for breastfeeding or infant.

Antiséptico tópico dermatológico y ginecológico. Utilizado también en enjuagues orales y para el tratamiento de aftas bucales y como hemostático en hemorroides.

A fecha de última actualización no encontramos datos publicados sobre su excreción en leche materna.

La pequeña dosis y la escasa absorción plasmática de la mayoría de preparaciones dermatológicas y ginecológicas tópicas hacen poco probable el paso de cantidad significativa a leche materna.
En el caso del policresuleno, el fabricante asegura que no hay absorción sistémica y que es compatible con la lactancia (Takeda 2018, CecMed 2018).
En caso de uso oral, hay que aplicarlo muy diluido y limpiarlo a los pocos minutos para evitar irritaciones y quemaduras locales (Wardhany 2016).

Producto con muy escasas referencias bibliográficas y/o muy antiguas.
