Aluminium Acetate

Very Low Risk

Safe. Compatible. Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.

Aluminum acetate or acetotartrate has astringent and skin irritation soothing properties. It is used in the form of otic drops in otitis externa and in the form of creams or lotions (Burow's solution) in skin irritations.

At the time of the last update, we found no published data on its excretion in breast milk.

The small dose and/or poor absorption of most topical otic and dermatological preparations make it unlikely that significant amounts will pass into blood plasma and even less into breast milk.

Alternatives

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

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.

Jose Maria Paricio, Founder & President of APILAM/e-Lactancia

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.
