    Default Skin...

    I noticed that towards the end of my PG that the skin on the backs of my hands was becoming very dry and it has since turned into dermatitis.... my skin in general has become a bit on the dry side since Jacob's arrival. Did anyone else notice changes to their skin after birth?

    Yes, my upper arms seem to have dry patchy areas. Very yuck, not there all the time, but most annoying when it is there, it certainly wasn't there before Jack!

    Yup I got excma for the first time in my life about a month after. All over my face and arms. Has cleared up with lots of moisturising. My elbows over the last few days have been cracked and sore.

    The heels of my feet dried out alot towards the end of my pregnancy & nothing I did or rubbed into them worked - it looked dreadful with cracked heels. The day after I had Eliana I looked at my heels & they were back to normal - so have no idea what happened as I didn't put any cream on them but they have been great ever since. Now if only those stretch marks & excess skin disappears as easily!!
