Tioconazole is an imidazole antifungal used to treat vulvovaginal candidiasis as well as superficial candidiasis, dermatophytosis and pityriasis versicolor. Topical cutaneous or vaginal administration.
At the time of the last update, we found no published data on its excretion in breast milk.
Systemic absorption through the skin or vagina is negligible (Hale, Mactal 2001, Houang 1985), making passage of significant amount into breast milk unlikely.
Do not apply on nipple-areola or wash off before breast-feeding.
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.
