I never had a skin condition until after my dd was about 8 months old and I now have terriblly persistant eczema on my breasts. DH and I want another child, but so far the only things that have cleared it up are steroids or herbal teas, neither of which I'm really comfortable using during pregnancy. I've heard low dose steroids are fairly safe "in moderation"-- but my symptoms return if I stop for even a few days. My SIL said her eczema cleared up when she was pregnant, but according to "what to expect..." it sounds like most womens gets worse.....
If you had eczema before you were pregnant, did it get worse, better or stay the same? If it stayed or got worse, how did you deal with it, and do you feel it affected your baby?
