Customer Question
My daughter had a...

My daughter had a baby on Friday, 12-15-17 and was released on 12-17-17. Now she has a red rash on her butt and it is swollen and itching. What could it be?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No recent injuries but she did have a C-section 4 days ago. The rash and itching started today

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, other than being in the hospital 4 days ago and having a spinal block for the C-section

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
