Eczema is a very common skin disease. Generally, when suffering from eczema, not only rashes will appear on the skin, but also obvious itching symptoms will appear. In the middle and late stages of pregnancy, most women will have edema symptoms, especially edema of lower limbs. So, can edema of pregnant women cause eczema?
Edema during pregnancy does not cause eczema. Eczema in pregnant women may be caused by genetic factors, and may also suffer from eczema after staying in a bad environment for a long time. Edema is a common symptom during pregnancy, and it will not cause any skin diseases.
Eczema in pregnant women may also be caused by infectious factors. There are many types of eczema, some of which may be caused by microbial infection, such as Malassezia, Mycospore and Penicillium punctatum. If pregnant women are infected with these microorganisms, they are prone to eczema.
After suffering from eczema, pregnant women should try to use drugs for external use, because pregnancy is a special period, and drugs cannot be used at will. Pregnant women need to ask a doctor to prescribe medicine and use it according to the doctor’s advice. During the treatment of eczema, care should be paid attention to, such as avoiding the affected part from being exposed to sunlight, and do not use hot water when cleaning. In addition, pregnant women should wear pure cotton underwear. If they wear chemical fiber underwear, it may irritate the affected area and make the itching symptoms more serious.
