Hello … Doc, is bactoderm mupirocim calcium safe for nursing mothers? I have consulted a doctor and given the cream but I forgot to ask whether or not safe for nursing mothers.

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically, the ointment given by your doctor is an antibiotic ointment that can be given to treat bacterial infections of the skin. Topical antibiotics only work locally on the smeared area and only very little is absorbed into the body, therefore the drug is safe for use by nursing mothers. Make sure you use it according to your doctor's instructions, and make sure it is only used topically (not eaten).

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
