I have the same thing, and my midwife said it's because my estrogen levels are low after the baby is born. Also, I'm breastfeeding, so she said the estrogen levels will not return to normal until I stop breastfeeding. She said to use lots of lotion, stay hydrated, and try adding flaxseed or foods with omega-3's in my diet.
There are physiological changes in the body during pregnancy, changes in the skin are part of these changes which may range from simple dryness to florid eruptions. You may continue with moisturizer lotions two to three times per day. If it is moderately severe then some corticosteroid lotion can be applied with this lotion.
