Yes. Topical corticosteroids have not been studied in women who are breastfeeding. However, significant absorption into the blood stream and then into the milk would only be expected with very potent corticosteroids used on large areas of the body. Make sure medication is not placed on the breast area (especially high potency corticosteroids) or in any area that may come in contact with your baby’s skin and mouth. Also be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after applying the medication. Be sure to talk to your health care provider about any question or concerns regarding brestfeeding.
Hi Jane! Yes many doctors don’t believe in this condition… I too have been doing this on my own as well as many others. I’m sorry your going through an intense ooze stage, that’s the absolute worst symptom for me 😔. It will get better though, what you’re doing with letting it air dry is a great idea, I do this as well because it creates a scab for healing to take place. It’s ok to not shower, I didn’t get my feet wet for months at the beginning when it was its worst. And if it becomes too dry, using a thin layer of coconut oil can help to ease it up plus coconut oil is antibacterial. The pain can be more intense at night because our bodies somewhat detox more at night. There’s no real telling about how long it will take to subside, just hang in there! Shoot me an email and I can send you some tips and such for healing! @ ☺️ stay strong warrior! The first 6 months are usually the hardest, you’re almost there & thankfully you didn’t use the medications for a super long time.
