I went to see my MW on Tuesday and she said I have ringworm on my torso. I thought it was eczema. She didn't have any advice as to what I could use, so I stopped at the pharmacy on my way home. Lots of the athlete's foot/jock itch creams also cure ringworm (which is a fungus, not a parasite). Anyway, the pharmacist would not recommend anything since I am pregnant and said to call my GP. So I did on Wed AM. Today, I get a call after 5pm from my GP saying she won't recommend anything since I am pregnant unless she or a dermatologist sees it to confirm. So now I have to try to get an appt with her tomorrow, and I have so much work to do. Grr. Do any of you have personal experience with this? Any medicine your doctor recommended in case I can't get in to see my GP tomorrow? Thanks.
Guess what? I saw the dermatologist on Friday and she said it's not ringworm, it's eczema (which I have never had when I am not pregnant). I have been using a steroid cream twice a day and the fantastic moisturizer CeraVe ($17 at CVS but so worth it) right when I get out of the shower. It has cleared up so much and I don't have to worry about giving DD and DH ringworm. I am hoping the eczema clears up once I deliver. One problem solved!
