Is it safe to use a facial wash with salicylic acid in it while breasfeeding? Dd is 6months, and I'm ready for my skin to be clear again. Just don't know if its safe to use, some websites say yes while other say no. So I figured I would ask you ladies since yall have the latest facts :)

A big Thank you in advance!!!

Generally speaking, anything topical is ok.  It's not going to penetrate enough to get into your milk.

Perfectly fine - but if you're using in the shower try to keep off nipples as it will dry them out.

Topicals are fine.
