Question

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

Answer by DrLact: About Butenafine usage in lactation

Topical butenafine has not been studied during breastfeeding. Because it is poorly absorbed after topical application, it is not likely to reach the bloodstream of the infant or cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants. 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]
