New mum scarred for life by allergy to her own son


Allergic to my own son ... Dayle Byrom developed a rash during pregnancy

A NEW mum has been scarred for life by an allergic reaction to her SON.

Dayle Byrom, 20, from Wakefield, was so allergic to hormones while pregnant with son Jacob that she developed a burning rash all over her body.
Her legs are now pockmarked with sores caused by constant scratching.
She said: “The pain got worse day by day. It started when I was 20 weeks’ pregnant and was at its worst at 30 weeks.
“My skin was on fire. If I touched anything it was agony. I couldn’t sit down or keep still. All I could do was itch and cry ... it felt like someone was ripping my skin off.
“I tried wearing gloves, but nothing stopped me digging at my skin. All I cared about was scratching, and everyday tasks became impossible.

“I felt like my body was telling me I shouldn’t be a mother.”
While pregnant, first-time mum Dayle confided in boyfriend Tom Hayward, 21, that the pain was driving her to have a termination.
She said: “Even though I was too far into my pregnancy, I still begged Tom for an abortion. I wasn’t thinking straight. I regretted ever getting pregnant in the first place.”
She pleaded with doctors to help but no-one could tell her the cause or suggest treatment.
“My GP told me it was the worst case she’d ever come across. I saw ten different doctors, and no-one could tell me what caused the rash. I was prescribed all sorts of antihistamine creams but nothing made the slightest bit of difference.”
She was diagnosed with Polymorphic Eruption of Pregnancy (PEP) which usually affects only first-time mothers and flares up in the later stages of pregnancy.

Only after Jacob was born on May 6 was Dayle referred to a dermatologist at Pontefract Hospital, who suggested a rare allergy was to blame.
Dayle, who works as a dog groomer and has no history of allergies, said: “The dermatologist said he was certain the rash was caused by an allergic reaction to testosterone which was produced while Jacob was growing inside of me.
“He said it was very rare to have an outbreak as bad as mine, but in the handful of similar cases, the women have gone on to have boys.
“I was told if I didn’t stop scratching immediately, I would have to be bandaged up. I’ve ruined my skin.
“The scars are very deep and, unfortunately, they’re never going to heal properly.
“I’m absolutely gutted. I can’t wear dresses or skirts any more. When I wore shorts in summer people stopped me in the street and asked me questions about the marks.

“Most women lose their confidence because of stretch marks, but mine’s been ruined by the damage to my legs. When on the rare occasion I go out, I have to cover up.”
PEP, which affects around one in 300 pregnancies, is still not fully understood by medical experts and there is currently debate over whether the sex of the baby is a cause.
Her symptoms are gradually easing but Dayle still compulsively scratches and fears she will never be able to return to pet grooming, as shampoo and other cleaning agents now severely irritate her skin.
She said: “Whenever I get into the bath or use baby lotion the itching comes back. I’ve accepted that it’s something I will have to live with.
“After the birth I swore I would never have any more children, but I’m starting to feel a bit more confident, and we’re already considering having a second child.
“I’m scared my symptoms will return when I have more kids, but I won’t let it put me off. Despite my bizarre allergy, having Jacob is still the best thing I’ve ever done.”

The only known cure is for her to swallow her man's loads. Lots and lots of loads.

One friends' father would often tell us he wished his eldest was a blown load in the stink.
