I've got excema, it's hereditary though mine is usualy under control and I don't have bad breakouts. Till I got pregnant now it's just bad...

My problem, I have a breakout on my belly ATM, a bad one nothing it clearing it up completely and I'm suposed to have a c section the 17th...

Can they still c section my baby or will they have to clear it up first? My main concern is the doctor doesn't think I will carry to the 17th, so it might end up spontaneous and my Ob is afraid if I labor and try for a vbac I will tear because there is already alot of strain on my previous scar from my ds's emergency c section...

Help!! An how do I clear it up! I've tried anti itch, oatmeal bath, lotions for it, everything my mom (an rn so I trust her advice alot) has Sugested. It hurts so badly and I wanna claw my skin off to stop the itchy

I have it really bad. Go to a dermatologist. I got an amazing cream/oil compound perscription. Its the only thing that I have had work. I broke out really bad after I had my son

Unfortunately I don't think I have time to see a dermatologist before I deliver... And I'm kinda worried they won't be able to deliver baby because of the break out being almost all over the old scar and upward.

I use a natural cream called urtica on my dd, so far it's the only thing that's worked, and coconut oil

So far the one thing that cleared my son up and that I have read wonderful results about is anything with at least 90% hemp oil (no it does not contain thc) Irish eyes seems to be commonly recommended as well as Hempz.

I know you said I've tried oatmeal bath but have you tried making a mask of it on ur stomach or even using real oatmeal. I use to do that to the worse spots on my son and it would clear him up

Cortisone 10 with aloe. You can pick this up at any drugstore.
