Avoid using it on the breast or cleanse thoroughly before nursing.
CAS Number: 110-17-8
Anti-inflammatory and immunomodulator used in the treatment of psoriasis and in relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. Since the last update we have not found published data on its excretion in breast milk. Its pharmacokinetic data (large volume of distribution and short half-life) make it unlikely that milk would pass through in significant quantities (Almas 2016).Possible side effects are rare and generally not serious, with no immunosuppressive effects or higher frequency of infections (EMA 2017, AEMPS 2015). Until there is more published data on this drug in relation to breastfeeding, known safer alternatives may be preferable, especially during the neonatal period and in case of prematurity (Brown 2017, Yiu 2015, Bove 2014, Cree 2013).
CAS Number: 79-14-1
Natural organic acid which is a part of alpha-hydroxy acids group or fruit acids (citric, lactic, malic and mandelic) with keratolytic and moisturizing properties on the skin.Topically used for acne, psoriasis and pigmentation disorders. At latest update relevant published data were not found on excretion into breast milk. The small dose used and poor passage to plasma of most topical dermatological preparations make unlikely an excretion into breast milk in significant amounts. It is very irritating. Do not apply it on the breast to prevent ingestion by the infant; otherwise, do it just after a meal and clean the nipple thoroughly with water before the next feed.
CAS Number: 7447-40-7
Human milk has a potassium concentration of 13 meq/L, almost a half of rehydration solution content and a quarter of maximal IV recommended dose. Potassium supplementation does not alter milk concentration without increasing mother’s serum concentration, which is strictly limited from 3,5 to 5,5 meq/L.
CAS Number: 123-31-9
Benzene derivative which is topically used with creams and solutions (2-4%) as a bleaching agent for several skin disorders associated to hyper-pigmentation. In industry it is used as photographic developer. TLV or threshold limit value which means maximum exposure limit for workers is 2 mg / m3 (Flickinger 1976). At latest update relevant published data were not found on excretion into breast milk. It is well absorbed through the skin, both when used as a therapeutic agent (Bucks 1998, Wester 1998, Westerhof 2005, Andersen 2010, Bozzo 2011) or industrial use (Barber 1995, McGregor 2007), however, a significant excretion into breastmilk is not likely for their lack of fat solubility. There is controversy and doubt about a possible mutagenic and carcinogenic effect (Kooyers 2004, FDA 2006, Levitt 2007, Andersen 2010), so it does not seem wise a chronic or continued use while breastfeeding. Do not apply it on the breast to prevent ingestion by the infant; otherwise, do it just after a meal and clean the nipple thoroughly with water before the next feed.Do not apply it over large areas or on long-term treatments to avoid an excessive systemic absorption.
CAS Number: 50-81-7
Vitamin C is abundantly present in food. A balanced and comprehensive diet makes vitamin supplementation useless. Any amount of vitamin C taken by the mother as a supplement does not affect significantly the concentration in breast milk of women who are on a varied and balanced diet.
Zinc (Zn) is an essential element for nutrition. It is present in many foods.Recommended daily allowance of Zn is 8 to 15 mg. (Moran Hall 2010). Millions of people worldwide are Zn-deficient.It is used as a treatment for Wilson's disease and Acrodermatitis Enteropathica. Zn is involved in the regulation process of lactation (Lee 2016).Pasteurization of the milk does not affect the concentration of Zn and other trace elements (Mohd Taufek-2016). The average concentration of Zn in breastmilk is 4 to 16 mg / L (Picciano 1976, Hannan 2005, Dórea 2012) which is independent of plasma levels and maternal daily intake (Krebs 1995, Chierici 1999, Hannan 2009).Intestinal absorption of zinc is almost doubled during pregnancy and lactation (Fung 1997).Zinc levels in the infant are dependent on Zinc levels in the breast milk (Dumrongwongsiri 2015)With a varied and balanced diet, an extra intake of minerals is not needed. Excessive intake of Zinc may cause gastrointestinal problems and Pancytopenia (Irving 2003).

Topical azelaic acid has not been studied during breastfeeding. Because only 4% of a dose is absorbed after topical application and it is a chemical that appears in foods and the bloodstream normally, azelaic acid is considered a low risk to the nursing infant. 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.
CAS Number: 79-14-1
No information is available on the clinical use of glycolic acid (hydroxyacetic acid) on the skin during breastfeeding. Because it is unlikely to be appreciably absorbed or appear in breastmilk, it is considered safe to use during breastfeeding. Avoid application to areas of the body that might come in direct contact with the infant's skin or where the drug might be ingested by the infant via licking.
CAS Number: 123-31-9
Topical hydroquinone has not been studied during breastfeeding. Hydroquinone is not contraindicated during breastfeeding and if hydroquinone is required by the mother, it is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding. However, some experts feel that long-term use of hydroquinone is difficult to justify in a nursing mother. If hydroquinone is used, ensure that the infant's skin does not come into direct contact with the areas of maternal skin that have been treated and the infant does not ingest the product from the mother's skin.
In most cases, it is okay to take mineral supplements like iron, calcium and copper. These have not been known to affect breast milk levels. However, taking large amounts of a dietary supplement while breast-feeding may be harmful to the mother and/or baby and should be avoided.
Thuja is one of the most common remedies used for warts. Topical Usage of Thuja for wart is likely safe while breastfeeding. We do not have sufficient safety usage data for Thuja oral consumption, However its likely unsafe to use thuja orally while breastfeeding.Warning: Tropical usage in breast area shall be avoided to prevent the Thuja passing orally in Infants.
Not much study has been done on safety of Viatrexx-pigmentation in breastfeeding and its ingredients. Even we do not have complete information about usage of Viatrexx-pigmentation in breastfeeding so at this point a trained medical professional could be your best bet. If you observe anything abnormal with your baby please contact 911.
If your doctor considers Viatrexx-pigmentation safe enough to prescribe for you that means its benefits should outweigh its known risks for you.
We are not Sure, Please check with your healthcare provider or doctor.
