a nasty rash (xpost)

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

a nasty rash (xpost)

Postby peachy_sweet » Mon Nov 09, 2009 11:46 pm

I was just wondering if anyone else developed a rash on their bellies, thighs, buttocks, or anywhere else on their bodies after giving birth?

I developed a really downright irritating depressing rash after I got my staples removed and the steristrips applied. My skin is all red and swollen lookiong with lil bumps all through them. At first it was just around the incision, but its gone from the incision and is now on my belly and in the creases of my groin. I pray to god it don't spread to my back, breast or face. I don't know if I should call my ob/midwife, gp, or dermatologist....hell I might call all three and see who can see me first. I have tried hrdrocortizone maxium strenght cream, benadryl, shea butter, and warm compresses. My next venture will be vaseline or destin ointment. P

Please tell me I am not alone. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

I'd call the doc. More then likly your allergic or sensitive to something in the medical tape they used after they took the sitches out.

MEEEE! 2-3 months before it went away. Doc recommended benedryl (pills). I think I'm allergic to the tape or something, then it spread to my thighs, bikini line. Awful! It will pass, but it took forever.

It has stop itching and is drying up, but it ledt my skin discolored. My belly, bikini line and around my incision is so not cute!. But what worked bes5t for me was the benadryl anti itch spray. It cleared up in t5wo days. I am allergic to the strips.
