Q.

Differin safe during breastfeeding?

Is it safe to use Differin on my face once a day? My baby is 7 weeks old and I' m not sure if this could pass to her through my milk.

I am afraid that it is not safe to use Differin while breast feeding. In fact breastfeeding is one of the strongest contra-indications to its use.
