Can I use Bactidol® during breastfeeding?

While breastfeeding, a mother should take particular care concerning her choice of products and medicines used, since all substances entering her bloodstream can be transferred to the baby through her breastmilk.

Having analyzed each individual situation in relation to the use by the mother and possible undesirable influence on the baby, a doctor may recommend the use of Bactidol® . Bactidol® has a local effect, so its entry into the bloodstream is minimal. There is no information concerning the undesirable effects of Bactidol® during breastfeeding. However, it should only be used during this period on doctor's advice.
