Any nurses or doctors? Very graphic picture inside of skin problem. **ETA**

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

This is under my c-section "flap"  My scar is fine but it is this skin that rubs together.  I just had my third baby 6 months ago.  is this a yeast infection.  It doesn't really itch it just hurts.  Should I give it time to heal up or go in about it?

I know I need to lose weight so no need to tell me that.

I know I need to do some major ladyscaping but I have not had the time or energy to do that yet.

ETA:  It has a funky smell.

Go for it.  Looks like a yeast type infection, and I am sure they have a special cream for it.  I would also try to keep it dry and open to air as much as possible.  Looks painful!

I do try to keep it powdered.

Quoting clearlyme:

I think you should call your dr. Have you tried powdering?

looks like a yeast infection, use some over the counter clotrimozole (sp?) and see if that works or go to the doctors.

I get a raw spot on the top part of my crack, too! Lol I thought I was the only one! I joke and call it athlete's or excema crack. I use a prescription anti fungal on it and it works.


Quoting armandswife:

I have this too. C-section flap, under my boob and in my crack. My doctor gave me some steroid cream that has worked wonders. I have no idea what it is though.
