Dermatology in pregnancy
During the 9 months of pregnancy the skin is affected from the hormonal changes and and progressive growing of the womb, the weight gain and the physical and psychological stress.
Striae distenziae (strech marks), melasma and other pigmentation disorders, skin tags and other common skin diseases like acne, psoriasis, veruccae (warts), fungal infections and eczema can appear or exaggerate.
Prophylactic measures can be taken in order to limit them.
They can be treated either during the pregnancy or after the delivery.
The treatments are individualised during pregnancy and lactation in order to avoid any complications in the normal growth of the embryo.
