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.

So DH and I have a very unique marriage. We love to gross each other out. I will scratch off my crack skin and throw it at him.

I can't believe I just fucking told that....lol

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.

You need to put cloth at the flap.

I think it could also *maybe* be jock itch. Yes, women can get that. I had that under my boobs once because I was working out a lot and the sweat and fiction caused it. I had to get a prescription cream for it. I would definitely go to your doctor. GL.

Don't use neosporin or moisturizers. Go to the doctor and they will give you anti fungal cream. Try to keep it dry until you can get to the doctors.

Yeah see a Dr for it.

I think it is a yeast infection.


Quoting Anonymous:

Get it checked but it looks like it couls also be heat rash. After that clears up use baby powder there. Its trapping the sweat in the fold and that is a feeding ground for a yeast infection.

 If it gets heat to it or gets bigger go in

Quoting Anonymous:

I have a paper towel there now.

Quoting Anonymous:

put something between the skin folds so that the skin doesnt rub together or sweat on it, its trapped moisture.
