    Do you have a rash as well? If so it could be PUPPS. A Google search will show you what the rash looks like.

    Other than that, no advice to stop an itch sorry

    Thankyou so much for replying! I changed soap because of the itching to a dermatology one to see if it will help and it hasn't. I live in Brisbane and it has been quite warm lately but not much humidity? I'm just not sure whether it's dry skin or getting to much moisture? I'm at a loss as it's mainly skin folds getting irritated but my gosh it's really hortible

    I know it's common to get itchy skin when your skin is stretching during pregnancy... But seems like odd areas for that to be happening!? :/

    Maybe try a cold shower/cold compress?

    I also put witch hazel on my bikini line after shaving - stops that post-shaving itch/rash. Just in case your underarms/bikini line areas have been irritated by shaving.
    Thanks so much! I will def try the cool shower after the hot. I'll try anything right now 😳
