Eczema

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.

Eczema

Postby MominMD » Fri Sep 23, 2011 10:44 am

Anyone get PP eczema? I started getting a rash all over my body around 6-7 weeks PP. Have been to doc, and he thinks it is eczema gone mad due to the hormone shifts. I had it on my hands after my older DS, but I had twins this time and doc said it is just my body reacting afterwards.

It is horrible, it is literally almost all over my body now. I am using a steroid cream and Aquaphor, but it pops up in a new spot every day.

Anyone else?

That sounds awful! I had really bad dry skin after the twins were born but thats about it. I hope you get some relief soon!

Thanks. It has gone away on my breasts and lower legs. Still have it on my arms, upper legs, stomach, and it is moving to my back. It is not fun. Hoping it moves on soon.
