Zinc oxide while Breastfeeding


CAS Number: 1314-13-2

It is used topically as an astringent and skin protector, very often together with small amounts of Ferric Oxide to form Calamine (see specific info). It is a product compatible with breastfeeding according to WHO Essential Medicine’s List - 2002.It is also used in dental hygiene products and cosmetics. Widely used for skin protection of the diaper area in infants. Because of the small dose used and poor absorption into plasma of most topical dermatological preparations, excretion into breastmilk in significant amount appears to be unlikely. Do not apply on the breast to prevent infant ingestion; otherwise, wash it off thoroughly with water before the next breast feed.

CAS Number: 140-65-8

Anesthetic drugs for topical use, both dermatological and odontological, have almost nil absorption when properly used. Do not apply on the breast. Otherwise, do it after having nursed, and cleanse it thoroughly with water before next feeding.
