The Use Of Face Creams While Breastfeeding?
I am breastfeeding but I use Vitaquin face cream. Is it safe for my child who is 9 months old ??
Good evening, thanks for the question
The face cream in question contains the active ingredient hydroquinone. Research on the use of hydroquinone during breastfeeding has never been done so that not much information can be obtained. But in general the use of topical hydroquinone is not a contraindication during breastfeeding, and if indeed the mother requires such therapy on clear medical indications, then the use of hydroquinone can be continued. However, you should make sure that the hydroquinone cream during use does not come into direct contact with the baby's skin. We also recommend that if it is not based on medical indications and recommendations from doctors who are experts in their fields, then it is better not to use the cream freely while breastfeeding.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
