VERY VERY itchy Skin!!!! - 16 weeks


Hi all, I am having itchy skin since last one week.

I scratch away to glory that I have rashes on my breasts and belly.

Its not just breasts and belly.... its all over the body (except for face, feet and palms....thank God those are excluded)

Its start of winter here. May be winter adds to this. I use palmers cocoa butter, but it helps only for 10 minutes....I have very dry skin too...

Please help me with some simple home remedies

A little itching might be from growing pains. But rashes all over the body? I'd check with your MW or doctor on that as that could be something more serious (like an allergic outbreak)!

I have dry skin naturally, and this pregnancy doesn't help me much in that department. However, I use a moisturizer every day that seems to keep most of the itching away.

Yeah i'd second the check with your MW or doctor. I read in my maternity notes that itchy skin can be a sign of liver problems - don't want to scare you.
I only read about it because I was having terrible itchiness on my feet, but this turned out to be simple to remedy, so hopefully yours is too.

I am constantly itching and was tested for the itching liver thing but it wasnt that and the registrar put it down to some women do itch more in pregnancy.
I was put on anti histamines that were safe in pregnancy and touch wood they are helping.
They also gave me some aquiaus (sp)cream as my arms went quite scaley and thats helped loads too
