Question

I am a breastfeeding mother and i want to know if it is safe to use Luliconazole? Is Luliconazole safe for nursing mother and child? Does Luliconazole extracts into breast milk? Does Luliconazole has any long term or short term side effects on infants? Can Luliconazole influence milk supply or can Luliconazole decrease milk supply in lactating mothers?

Answer by DrLact: About Luliconazole usage in lactation

Topical luliconazole has not been studied during breastfeeding. Because it is poorly absorbed after topical use and is highly plasma protein bound, it is a low risk to the nursing infant. Avoid application to the nipple area and ensure that the infant's skin does not come into direct contact with the areas of skin that have been treated. Only water-miscible cream or gel products should be applied to the breast because ointments may expose the infant to high levels of mineral paraffins via licking.[1]
