I have just had my Ceasarean last June and am now breastfeeding my baby. I am having irritating skin itchiness on my hands and legs.

Can you suggest a cream/ lotion or pills which suit my condition?

Thank you.

Regards,

Vinnii

Dear Vinni


There may be several causes for the irritation but if it is non-specific, it may be hormonal in nature. I would suggest you try some Calamine lotion or over the counter moisturising cream in the first instance. If it does not improve within a week, you should consult your doctor who will examine the nature of the irritation and consider the possible causes before prescribing something appropriate.
