Itchy skin
Fri, 09-21-2012 - 12:25am

I have 2 huge patches of itchy skin on my inner thighs, SO itchy that they're bruising and little bumps that look like bug bites or hives are appearing. I haven't changed anything since having the baby, detergents are the same etc. The only thing I noticed is that these spots are exactly where the nursing pillow rests when I nurse crossed-legged in the bed. I'm thinking maybe it's some kind of heat rash? Or maybe just a hormonal thing? Anyone else have patches of itchy skin in odd places?
