Hello! My tummy and underneath my breast itch really bad and has become kinda irritated and my skin is starting to peel in those areas any suggestions on what to put on my skin to hlp cause the lotion is not helping. I know dry skin can be a part of pregnancy but it's driving me nuts...pls hlp!
I had this problem and asked my doctor what to do....he suggested Luke warm showers....then a light lotion...followed by corn flower powder. Told me also to make sure the bra properly supported my boobs (where there is no skin to skin contact- basicly your boobs laying on your skin under your boobs-) and to rinse my bra every night in between washings! For tummy make sure your pants and shirts are not to tight...this will increase the dryness! Hope this helps!
Lol what you were describing almost sounded like a yeast infection which can cause the itchy, peeling, ect but it'll have a smell lol easily taken care of though lol corn starch or talc like above should help :-)
What I did which helps a TON if you keep a bottle of baby oil in the shower and when you're done in the shower dry your hair and wrap it in a towel but don't dry the rest of your body and then just rub down with baby oil from your neck down and then dry off it locks in all that moisture. Do that like every other shower and keep doing whatever else you're doing lotion wise as well and make sure your water temp isn't to hot. You'll notice the difference in a week or so! Good luck!
Or, are you prone to eczema/ skin sensitivities in general? I have some under my tummy now due to the increased skin contact and therefore, moisture. My doctor suggested zeasorb powder. I just got it but haven't tried it yet.
