I am 3 wks postpartum and had a severe allergic reaction 3 days after my c-section. Was covered head to toe in a rash that itched like crazy. My ob thinks I had an allergic rxn to the benzoin and/or steri strips but he used that on my c-section 4 yrs ago and I didn't have a rxn then. I was put on 12 days of steroids and the rash got better, but now I still get itchy and have a small rash on both of my lower legs. Still get itchy on my neck and belly a little bit too. I use cortisone and it seems to help....just wondering when this will all subside. On top of all of this, I just got a hemorrhoid that hurts like hell 2 days ago and have tried soaking in a hot tub, using preparation h suppositories, tucks pads... Nothing seems to help! Any advice out there?? I am desperate!
