    Mine do too, although I have psoriasis so I thought it might be more to do with that.

    I've been putting the emolliant for my psoriasis on it, and also it's difficult, but when you're having a shower try to avoid getting shower gel or soap on them as this definately makes mine worse, although I've never had this problem before I got pregnant.
