    Default Is anyone else itchy???

    I'm 28 weeks pregnant with no.3.. and I'm really itchy, especially when I get a bit hot...last night I was so itchy in bed it was driving me insane! Tonight I'm going to take a polaramine before I go to bed as I have to work tomorrow and I cant be awake all night feeling itchy LOL!!!

    It's like my back is itchy..and my legs..and my back and arms, and my back!!! AAAARgh!!!!!

    Is anyone else itchy????????????

    I don't mean to alarm you, but please give your carers a call about this.

    I agree with opinionated. Just give the GP hotline or your midwife/obstetrician a call. Excessive itching can be a sign of cholestasis but it's probably just your stretching skin. Better to be safe and get it checked out!

    could it be eczma??? Im really itchy in the creases of my elbows and knees and lower back - I have dry flaky red skin, actually one of elbows is terrible. Come to think of it ...I had eczma last pregnancy I think?,...I dont think it's cholestasis, my hands and feet are fine..I can actually see where Im itchy because it looks like eczma come to think of it...

    Hormones by themselves can cause itching. Best to check it out though!

    Rub some chamomile or pawpaw cream on it. Sounds like ezema if it's in the skin creases. I don't think you get a rash with cholestasis but best to still call someone just to be sure :-) good luck!

    Thanks, i just saw the same thing on a few websites that u wouldn't normally get a rash with cholestasis, my elbows and behind knees are the worst. I think i have some chamomile here or bio oil i might try that.
