Why is it I never had eczema until after my son was born?

Has anyone experienced having eczema only after having children? Do you know why this might happen?

Humm..I broke out in hives, had dry itchy skin after my baby was born, but it was never diagnosed as eczema, and now I wonder...

But, I never had any skin conditions before my daughter was born.. I was even the pure faced teenager (no visible acne) .

So I thought my face was gonna fall off during this time.. I didn't put anything on my face because everything burned, but it went away within 5-6 mths. But it was my face and other parts of my body, and dish pan hands didn't help with the dryness..

Then it just vanished until I had my 2nd son and same story-eczema on thr palm of the same hand andafter about a year gone. Guess what happened with my third son? Bingo same story lol...he's 7 months just about so I guess ive got a few months to wait

I don't sell this product but a really really good product to clear up eczema.... diaper rash... any type of skin irritation is Skincerity. It is really really good. It acts as a liquid bandage. If you have trouble finding some let me know and I can direct you. Good luck :)

I got it after each child because of all of the hand washingbathing, clothes scrubbing I was doing. Changing a newborn requires enormous amounts of hand washing! I noticed that if I took time to dry my hands really well after I washd them it wasn't so bad. I finally had to go to the doctor and get some cream to clear it up.

I did after having my third child. It developed on my hand inbetween my ring finger and pinkie. At first it just looked like really dry skin and then turned into eczema. My doctor said to use cortisone cream on it. I did and it went away completely after a month or so.

Nor did I - after having my first son it developed on my hands and fingers. At times it was terribly itchy and quite unsightly.
After a year or so it went away and I thought nothing more of it - until I had twins and then it was back even worse than before. I now realise that I am reacting to the baby wipes and then aggrevating it by having my hands in and out of hot water all day (having to wash hands, bottles, run baths etc).
Maybe yours is similar......good luck

It started during the pregnancy of my second child. From 2 fingers to all my fingers now. I have up to 5 different creams at home right now and none seems to be working. Tried using gloves for my chores but it became worse. Can anyone recommend what they used as nothing seems to be working please? Thank you.
