Oh the itching....

My ENTIRE body seriously itches :smileysad:  I try to put lotion on whenever it happens, but that seems to bring only temporary relief....and I'm finding it hard to apply while at work.  I remember a short period of time when this happened in my last pregnancy, but it was only my legs and I think it lasted like 10 days (but it didn't happen until much later in the pregnancy)......this is much worse, though it's only been 3 days.  I'm going crazy.....I hope it doesn't last long because I might scratch myself to death......

Hi there. Try peppermint soap and try not to scratch. The soap I have been using dries out m skin (in a good way). It is peppermint and tea tree oil and I buy it at my local farmers market. Please try not to scratch, I know it is easier said than done. You can also ask your ob to do a test for cholestasis a check to see if your liver is ok, but I think that is only if your hands and feet are itchy.
I had pupps when I was pregnant with my first daughter ( a really bad case) and 34 weeks and now again at 35 weeks Thankfully now I ony have bumps and itching on my stomach from stretch marks and I pray it doesnt spread like it did with my last pregnancy. If you ever have any questions come visit me at the October expecting messageboard. Hope you get some relief!
