INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE DRY SKIN DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is dry skin during pregnancy?

Dry skin during pregnancy usually falls into the category of xerosis cutis (abnormally dry skin due to no recognized underlying disease process), or the category of atopic dermatitis (eczema). Xerosis cutis can result from excessive showering with hot water, too much rubbing with a towel, and cold, dry winters with overheated rooms and buildings. Atopic dermatitis, which can be triggered by pregnancy, features areas of red, itchy, scaly, dry skin resulting from allergies. Still, unlike contact allergic dermatitis, the parts of the skin reacting can be very distant from the allergen.
