D08AH01

Very Low Risk

Safe. Compatible. Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.

An antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent.
Used topically, locally, via pill or mouthwash and dermatological and vaginal preparations.

Since the last update date we have not found published data on its excretion in breastmilk.

The small dose and low plasma absorption of most oral, dermatological and vaginal topical preparations make it unlikely that significant amounts will transfer to breastmilk.
Systemic absorption of dequalinium through skin, mouth or vagina has been shown to be insignificant (Mendling 2016).

Do not apply on the chest or clean well before breastfeeding.

Alternatives

We do not have alternatives for D08AH01 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.
