hi sis, may I know where do u get the calamine lotion? I get this red patches during my post natal as well. how long it takes for u to recover?

You are having post natal PUPPP. If really unbearable, go see a dermatologist for treatment.. if not may last a long time

It may be due to your body is weak after birth. You may want to consult TCM for recuperation. Just my two cents worth.

i had this too so I took some yin nourish supplements/herbs as advised by TCM. it goes off slowly after few months.

My whole body itch for the entire night when I had epidural. After baby came out the itch stopped

You can use some Chinese wine … It’s happen to me oso !!! It’s helps :) ❤️

yes on my hips
