  • Tinea Versicolor- Skin Fungus Treatment

    Hello,
    During the summer time I often get a skin fungus called tinea versicolor. In the past I have used the topical cream clotrimizole- typically used for athlete's foot to clear it up. Is this safe for breastfeeding? If not, is there an alternative you recommend?
    Many thanks!

    Hi desimatt1,

    We don't have any data on transfer into breastmilk, but absorption of clotrimizole into your body after topical administration is negligible. As long as you are avoiding contact areas with the baby, I expect it should be safe.

    Best,
