    Default Plantar Wart Removal - Are Chemicals Safe?

    Well, it's already done, so I hope the answer is yes!! I had my plantar warts treated today and didn't even think to make sure it was safe while breastfeeding. My son is almost 3 and only nurses once AM and once PM, varies on the weekends. I'm pretty sure the following were used: Cantharidin and Imiquimod (Aldara). Does anyone have the Dr. Hale book to check, or have any experience with this? I'm sure I can hold him off if I need to.

    I don't have the book, but Dr. Hale's InfantRisk Center in Texas now has a hotline you can call: (806) 352-2519.

    You might also want to run it through LactMed.

    I don't know off hand. It would seem they are using such a small amount of the chemicals on your surface of your skin to really affect your milk.. but a little FYI apple cider vinegar.. It is fantastic at removing plantar warts.. hurts a little after a few days but totally worth it...
