Cordran SP Cream and Breastfeeding
If you are breastfeeding, consult your healthcare provider before using Cordran SP Cream (flurandrenolide cream). It is unknown if this drug passes through breast milk. However, because this medicine is applied to the skin, it is not expected that large amounts would be passed to a nursing baby. Avoid putting Cordran SP Cream on an area that would directly expose the baby to the medicine.
Cordran® SP Cream (flurandrenolide cream) is a medication used to treat a variety of different skin conditions in adults. It is a steroid and is available by prescription only. Currently, it is unknown if Cordran SP Cream passes through breast milk. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding a child, you should talk with your healthcare provider about using Cordran SP Cream.
No research has been done to see if Cordran SP Cream passes through breast milk. However, other similar steroids are known to pass through breast milk. Fortunately, even when steroids are taken by mouth or by injection, only very small amounts pass through breast milk. This implies that applying a steroid to the skin would probably result in very tiny amounts (if any) passing through breast milk, although this is not known for sure.
Direct skin-to-skin contact with areas where the cream has been applied should be avoided to prevent exposing the baby to the medication by skin transfer. Also, avoid applying it near or on the nipple. If this is not possible, be sure to completely remove Cordran SP Cream before the baby breastfeeds.
Since Cordran SP Cream usually works great for quickly relieving skin inflammation, some mothers wonder if they could use it on a stubborn diaper rash. This medication is not approved for treating diaper rash and is specifically not recommended for use in the diaper area. Young children are more likely to absorb a dangerously high amount of the medication, especially when applied to broken skin (like a diaper rash) and especially when the area is covered, such as by a diaper.
