Since the last update we have not found any published data on its excretion in breast milk.
It is practically not absorbed by skin (AEMPS 2019, Galderma 2018, Abkhavan 2003), hence it cannot achieve significant levels in the milk (Hale 2019, Briggs 2017, Leachman 2006).
The manufacturer (AEMPS 2019, Galderma 2018) consider the use of this medication to be safe during breastfeeding.
Avoid using it on the breast or cleanse it thoroughly before nursing.
Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it. The pharmaceutical industry contraindicates breastfeeding, mistakenly and without scientific reasons, in most of the drug data sheets.
Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.
Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
