Trifarotene has not been studied during breastfeeding. Because it is poorly absorbed after topical application, it is a low risk to the nursing infant. Do not apply trifarotene cream directly to the nipple and areola and ensure that the infant's skin does not come into direct contact with the areas of skin that have been treated.
