Hey- I was actually coming in to the c-section section to see if anyone else is having this issue! I never even considered that it would be a yeast infection, I just thought it was really resilient heat rash or chaffing I have tried powder, and bordeaux's butt paste (our household cure all! lol) and it's not going away. I have Nystatin cream here that was used when my girls got thrush and a vaginal yeast rash- I'll try that and see if it helps! Mine DOES itch and is at least motivating me some to try to loose some of this weight so that FX the flap goes away (It's actually the flap and the weight that puts me off It's been a year but I really can't get used to this body I am really hoping loosing weight will do the trick. What I am afraid of is that the twins stretched me out so bad there will be no helping it besides surgery, which is not an option for me.
With my last c-section I had trouble with it healing and having the overhand did not help, and apart from the fact it opened up slightly after stitches were removed, it was red and itchy and sweaty in places, I had to get some general wound care advice. I will be having another c-section in December and I will be doing this no matter what.
buy an inadine dressing from a chemist, roll it corner to corner and place it along the scar tuck it into the fold and then secure another dry dressing over it. Inadine draws out infection and promotes quicker healing.... within 2 days my wound had healed over and all the redness and itchiness had gone. Best advice I was given ever.
