Acyclovir (Acivir Cream) Nursing Considerations

It is not known whether topically applied Acyclovir (Acivir Cream) is excreted in breast milk. Systemic exposure following topical administration is minimal. After oral administration of Acyclovir, Acyclovir concentrations have been documented in breast milk in 2 women and ranged from 0.6 to 4.1 times the corresponding plasma levels. These concentrations would potentially expose the nursing infant to a dose of aciclovir up to 0.3 mg/kg/day.
Nursing mothers who have active herpetic lesions near or on the breast should avoid nursing.
Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
