Very Low Risk
Antifungal agent that is used as a component of creams, gels, suspensions or pessaries.
At latest update no published data were found on excretion into breast milk.
Less than 5% of the applied dose is absorbed.
Because the small dose used and low level achieved in the plasma of most topical dermatological preparations make unlikely the passage of significant amounts into breast milk.
Even more, its high plasma protein-binding capacity makes unlikely excretion into milk.
Do not apply on the chest to prevent infant ingestion; otherwise, apply it after a feeding and clean thoroughly with water before the next one.
