i itch all over as well, i think that its due to dry skin.. lotion defintely helps me but then again sometimes the lotion makes me have a rash, haha, sooo i just scratch my itches for now.. i think i need to go get a mild nonscented lotion and that shoudl help
That happen to me a lot when I was pregnant with Cooper, but thankfully it is not happening this time. I know the Aveeno Overnight Intense Cream really worked well for me. I used it everywhere's after I got out of the shower!! It was a real blessing.
OMG, yes!!! I am using cocoa butter, after my morning shower and again before bed. It seems to work. I asked my OB about it and she said that the hormonal surge can sometimes dry our skin more then normal. Other's get really oily skin.
I'm using Johnson & Johnson baby soap (the lavender one..I can't think of the name) and I use Aveeno lotion with Grape Seed Oil added to it. But it's not helping...AND some of the itching is my scalp...my inner ears...my butt cheeks (the part that touches...don't laugh! My DH thinks I'm 'digging at my 'hole and no amount of explaining to him changes the horrible mocking ;) )..my eyes...places that I can't really put lotion, y'know?
I just wondered if it was a part of pregnancy or if I should be worrying about something else going on! Thanks for putting my mind at ease!
