Is Facelin safe to be used while lactating?

Hello, I m planning to begin using Faceclin (clindamycin + nicotinamide) Gel to deal with my acne eruptions on my face and Glycovira (Glycolic Acid 12%) Cream for the acne scarring on my back. My baby is 5 months old, are these medications safe while I m lactating?

Dear Madam,
Hi & Welcome

Faceclin Gel (Clindamycin, and Nicotinamide) is commonly prescribed for the treatment of bacterial infections of the skin and soft tissue, etc.

It is not found to be safe during pregnancy and lactation hence should not be used.
In general, Glycolic acid products like Glycovira are considered safe to use when you are lactating hence you can use it for the acne eruptions on your face.

Hope this answers your query.
