I should call my midwife, but they are closed on wednesdays. I bought
some herbal creme for my exzema which is really bad right now, and
after I put it on, totally forgot that some herbs arent recommended
during pregnancy. It has the following:
calendula, st johns wort, evening primrose oil, calophyllum, licorice
root, litsea, blue chamomile, rosemary, green myrtle, niaouli.
I cant imagine how it would hurt me...but, the exzema is like an open
sore at this point so it could absorb easily though. I tried doing
some research, but everything I read was about oral ingestion of
herbs... not topical.... I just really dont want to page my midwife to
ask her about something like this. (I tortured her enough with my
first pregnancy) I also dont want to cause complications.
SO far this stuff has worked... It has stopped itching. It is working
on my daughter's cheeks too.
