Hi, I'm breastfeeding a four-month-old. Thank heavens she has not contracted PI, but I seem to have gotten it from laundering my husband's clothes (he's in landscaping and got it on a job). Does anyone know if Zanfel, Cortaid, Benedryl, etc. are OK for lactating women to take? Any harm to the milk (i.e. decreases production or impacts milk) or to the baby (getting active ingredients/drugs through milk)?
