C section infection 5 months after birth(1 Post)
First post on here so thanks for reading!!
I had my daughter nearly 5 months ago via elective c section (had an emergency section with my son, now 4.5). Since then I have had infection after infection- so much so that I’m currently on my seventh course of antibiotics since my daughter’s birth. I’m royally fed up as each time I take antibiotics I then get thrush too 😡
Just wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience and whether I need to push for a hospital trip to get IV antibiotics as it seems the tablets aren’t working? This time I’ve also been given a steroid cream but the scar is red and raised and the skin around it is very sore and itchy. I also have pain inside.
any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much x
