Its negligible systemic absorption through skin or nails (Roncari 1992) make it unlikely that it will transfer into breastmilk in significant amounts (AEMPS 2018, MHRA 2011).
It has been described sporadic neonatal use without observing side effects (Fu 2013).
It is a safe and compatible product during lactation (AEMPS 2018, MHRA 2011).
We do not have alternatives for Amorolfine 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.
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.
