Having a baby can really take a toll on your skin. Especially the skin around your mid-section. Your skin is stretched, pulled and exhausted after having a baby. It’s important that you take as much care of your skin after post-baby as before. One of the main things I had a problem with after I came home from the hospital was skin dryness. My skin would get very irritated and red. I even broke out in hives for a little while. I am slowly getting rid of my hives and my skin is normalizing again.
About 2 weeks after I got home I noticed things like when I scratched my arm, it was very flaky and dry. One day I woke up and my calves were itchy, and they had little hives all over them. I also noticed the skin around my mid-section and my stretch marks became very red and dry as well. Even the skin on my knuckles became very dry and scaly. Yes, none of this was pleasant so, I knew I needed to try something different.
