Excretion into breast milk is highly unlikely due to an almost nil systemic absorption through the skin, vaginal mucosa and even the intestine, with non-significant plasma levels (< 1 mcg/ mL) observed. In case of use on the nipple, let it be done after the feed and wipe it out any excess of cream before the next feed. Do not apply creams, gels and other products that would contain paraffin (mineral oil) to avoid absorption by the infant since it is a hydrocarbon-derived substance. Miconazole has not been found to be more effective than pure lanolin for treatment of sore or cracked nipples. List of Essential Medicines by WHO 2002: compatible with breastfeeding.
CAS Number: 22916-47-8
Because miconazole has poor oral bioavailability, it is unlikely to adversely affect the breastfed infant, including topical application to the nipples. However, miconazole ointment appears to have no advantage over lanolin for treating sore nipples during breastfeeding and a survey of members of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine found topical miconazole is rarely prescribed to nursing mothers to treat thrush. Any excess cream or ointment should be removed from the nipples before nursing. 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.
It is always a good idea to keep your healthcare provider or doctor informed about your drug usage during pregnancy and breastfeeding but if you have not informed your doctor about Miconazole Nitrate 20 Mg In 1 G and have used it then do not panic as Miconazole Nitrate 20 Mg In 1 G is mostly safe in breastfeeding and should not cause any harm to your baby.
