ADVISABLE 1. TOPICAL CLOTRIMAZOLE 2. ORAL FLUCONAZOLE

Fluconazole is secreted in breast milk but is considered safe in neonates. Ketoconazole and itraconazole are absorbed poorly in milk but better avoided during lactation. Terbinafine is transferred through milk, and as there are no long-term data on infant toxicity, it has to be used for a prolonged time.

Fluconazole. Itraconazole. Ointment. Keto . Candid .

Tb fluconazole 150mg one per week or tb terbinafine 250mg 1od. Both can be given according to site of leison.

No antifungal drugs safe during breastfeeding and pregnancy Instead can use lotion or cream..

FLUCONAZOLE DOC
