Very Low Risk
At latest update no published data on excretion into breast milk were found.
Excretion into breast milk is highly unlikely due to the low absorption through the skin (1%) or vaginal mucosa (8%) and hence a low presence into the blood.
Whenever used on the nipple apply it after feeding and remove excess of cream before the next meal.
It should be avoided the use on the nipple of creams, gels and other products for local application containing paraffin (mineral oil) to keep the infant off from absorption.
We do not have alternatives for Flutrimazole 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.
Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
