My GP prescribed it for me, but the warnings on the info sheet list breastfeeding as a possible contrindication. Has anyone used it ?

My DD (5 months) has been prescribed it for a slight skin infection in a patch of eczema so would assume fine, unless your actually applying to nips?

i was told "yes it;s safe" by one GP
and "I wouldn't" by another GP
Sorry if that's not much help.
FWIW I did end up using it when breastfeeding, but by then DD was well over a year old

I'm sure it's just fine - I would definitely not hesitate to use it. Virtually every medicine says that - arse-covering.

Yes, definitely fine unless you are applying it to the nipples!!
