    Default Itchy itchy itchy

    What do people use on bites when they are pregnant?

    I've always reacted pretty badly to bites and on Friday night we were at a garden wedding and I've been eaten by little black things (sandflies? midgies?). Now all the bites are about the size of a 5c piece and I have 20+ over my arms back and chest. I could hardly sleep last night cos of the itching.

    Eurax cream has always been my fave but I went to the chemist for some today and the active ingredient (crotamiton) isn't recommended during pregnancy She sold me some Soov Gel but it's not having as good an effect as I would like. Any suggestions?

    Coconut oil is excellent for soothing itchiness
