I am 3 days postpartum and started getting this rash in the hospital the day after delivery. I've been putting hydrocortisone cream on it. It itches like crazy.

It wasn't this bad there, it was just a little red, I thought it was irritation from the heart monitor belt they put on you.

No clue but hopefully it goes away quick.

I would have it looked at by a dr. A friend of mine got a similar rash and it turned out to be a staph infection she caught at the hospital.

Your welcome. And it could just as easily be something else. But best to be safe.
