Rosacea and breastfeeding

It is funny how questions come in groups. At the moment many mothers are contacting me with questions about Rosacea particularly wanting to use Soolantra (Ivermectin cream).

This is the chapter from my book Breastfeeding and Chronic Medical Conditions which I hope helps.

The information on ivermectin cream is limited but Hale suggests a relative infant dose of 1.3 even after oral medication, so topical absorption is unlikely to affect a breastfed infant.

I have today (5th March 2021) reduced the price of the paperback and kindle version of Breastfeeding and Chronic Medical Conditions.

Please email me with any questions wendy@breastfeeding-and-medication.co.uk
