I've had eczema for many years. When I was pg, my skin cleared up!! And for about 6 months afterwards. Assuming this was because of hormonal change, as I was breast feeding.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I had horrible eczema since childhood(so bad I would hide my hands at school) but later, when I got pregnant it went away forever. Now I get dry skin in the winter but that's all. Of course I passed the eczema gene on to my son unfortunately.

I had eczema as a child, went away when I was about 8 and popped up again at 15. I had it until I was 23 and became pregnant. I am currently 5months preggers and its clearing up. I had a huge ring around my belly button, on my left wrist up to my elbow, an on the inside of my upper right arm. When I got sweaty it would pop up the crease of my neck. Now my belly and wrist have cleared up completely, and my arm is working on it. And it no longer pops up here and there for a couple days. Maybe its the prenatal vitamins? Maybe its the hormone changes. IDK and don't care, its going away!!! I hope it never returns.

I've had chronic eczema since birth. 23 yrs old now. I'm 3 months pregnant and my skin is just getting more dry :(. Any suggestions on what worked for you guys? My Obgyn told me it's only going to get worse during my pregnancy.
