The Use Of Shampoo Containing Selenium Sulfide For Nursing Mothers?
I am a breastfeeding mother, my hair coincidentally is very severe, can I use selsun shampoo or not?
Thank you for the question.
Excessive dandruff on the scalp can certainly be very disturbing. This condition is mainly caused by the growth and loss of scalp cells that are too fast, presumably due to disruption in the oil glands in the scalp. Pregnant and lactating women are one of the groups who are at risk of experiencing excessive dandruff due to hormonal fluctuations in the body.
There are various ways you can do to deal with excess dandruff on the skin, including one by using an anti-dandruff shampoo, like the shampoo you mentioned that contains the active composition of selenium sulfide in it. Selenium sulfide is a compound that can overcome ketompe, as well as can relieve itching, excessive exfoliation, and also overcome fungal infections on the scalp.
So far, there is not enough data available regarding the potential of selenium sulfide in influencing the quality and quantity of breast milk produced. There is also not enough research to prove the safety of selenium sulfide when used when breastfeeding. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding and want to use this shampoo, you should first check with your doctor or dermatologist nearby ..
I hope this helps.
