Why Is My Skin More Dry Since Giving Birth
Since becoming pregnant, my nipples have turned much darker. Will this keep me from breastfeeding? Is this normal?
This is normal: Darkening of the nipples and surrounding area called the areola is completely normal in pregnancy. A dark line (the linea nigra) may also appear down the middle of the belly. The color change in pregnancy is more dramatic in darker skinned people. This is all normal and will not affect breastfeeding in any way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please see your Dr.: Isotretinoin dries the skin. That is part of its action. Because skin is more dry, you may be developing eczema which is itchy. Make sure you are using a mild soap and don't scrub skin when you wash. Eliminate all fragrances from anything that touches your skin including laundry detergents. Use a moisturizing cream on body, arms, legs. If that doesn't work, please see your dr. For evaluation. ...Read more

I used triamcinolone for my face but dont have any more. My skin is very sensitive what can i use instead wothout my face breaking out more?
Doctor can recheck: Triamcinolone is a stronger cortisone (steroid) cream. Over-the-counter hydrocortisone is a weaker one. In such cases, the prescribing doctor and/or a dermatologist can recheck the face. If in the meantime, a cream is needed, patients can often wean down to hydrocortisone cream (no prescription needed) while waiting to see the doctor within one week. These steroid creams are for short-term use. ...Read more
