Has anyone had this? It's all over my tummy and breasts. Feels like a sunburn. I've tried different skin oils and it was so unbearable this afternoon I layered myself is aloe Vera which soothed it a little bit. Now I'm onto calimine lotion which has taken the itch away.
Any advice or tips if you have suffered this?

I had it last pregnancy around 28 weeks. I used my eczema cream which helped it. But found I gave it a few weeks and it went away eventually. I remember it being really itchy!!

Yep I had this around 34 weeks. Was torture! Ended up spreading to my arms and legs.
OB subscribed pherngan but didn't really help he also done a blood test to rule out anything more serious to do with the liver.
What ended up getting rid of for me was dandelion root capsules from the health shop after I tried every cream I could think of. Lukewarm baths were also good to take the itch away.
Hope it goes away soon for you.

I had this late in my previous pregnancy and it was horrible! I physically couldn't stop myself from scratching it so it ended up bleeding and horrible! The doctor prescribed me a cream, I don't remember the name but I think it may have been a steroid cream? Anyway I had to use it sparingly as it isn't good for you or the baby but yeah I tried everything and that was the only thing that seemed to help!

Unless your allergic I something youve eaten or touched I'd say its puppps but I'm not a doctor. Other then calamine or natural lotions I think you'll be given a steroid based cream or antihistamines for the itch if you feel it's really bad. Hopefully you hear back from your OB soon
