Around Wednesday of last week my chronically dry pregnancy skin turned into a hot mess in places—namely on the top of my breasts. This rash didn’t itch at first, just slight irritation. Then it started itching. I e-mailed the nurse at the OB’s office and she prescribed a cream for me—Nystatin. It helps right after I put it on and it diminishes the appearance temporarily, but it does not get rid of it. In fact, it has spread some and is on my lower abdomen and (dear lord) my nipples some. It also itches like crazy now. LIKE CRAZY.
I haven’t changed anything I use on my skin and I already use products for sensitive skin anyhow.
It’s red in appearance…small red bumps that look like they’re coming out of the hair follicles.
Normally I wouldn’t be so blatant about such a sensitive issue (yeah, I know…I’ll talk about IVF all day long but it pains me to talk about a simple rash. go figure), but I’m hoping someone has a good solution. If I have to go through this for another 6 months or so, I’m going to scream. I’ll deal with it, but I’ll scream.
So my question is…has anyone had this during pregnancy and what did you do to make it better?
