Safe substance and/or breastfeeding is the best option.

A topical anti-fungal treatment from the imidazole family applied to the skin or vaginally.

Negligible systemic absorption through the skin (Effik 2010) or vaginal mucosa (Novelli 1991) make it very unlikely that significant amounts pass into breast milk.

Do not apply on nipple-areola or alternatively clean before breastfeeding.

It is advisable to avoid the application to the nipple of creams, gels and other topical products containing paraffin (mineral oil) so that the infant does not absorb them (Concin 2008, Noti 2003)


We do not have alternatives for 硝酸フェンチコナゾール 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.
