Use Of Cosmetics Containing Hydroquinone And Tretinoin While Breastfeeding?
Mlm sorry I want to ask if I can use hydroquinone tretinoin alcohol for my face because I am breastfeeding, thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hydroquinone is a drug that is often used to treat darkening of skin parts, it could be due to acne scars, scars, consumption of birth control pills, hormone therapy, post pregnancy or black spots that appear due to sunlight.
This drug is a prescription drug that has not yet undergone sufficient testing to determine its effect on breastfeeding mothers, whether it is absorbed into breast milk or not. So it is better if both pregnant and lactating women consult an obstetrician or skin specialist with regard to the use of this component.
While Tretinoin, is a drug that is often used to treat acne by opening clogged skin pores. Like hydroquinone, this drug is a prescription drug and is usually used by applying it to the face. The difference is, there have been studies that clearly show that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not allowed to use this drug because it is proven that its contents can enter breast milk and be swallowed by your baby.
So the conclusion, because there is one questionable content and one content that is clearly prohibited, you should not use this drug, and look for other cosmetic alternatives that are considered safer for breastfeeding mothers by consulting a skin specialist or beauty clinic.
