I have had super itchy skin especially on my lower legs since as far back as I can remember, but not really due to pregnancy.
There are some things I can suggest you do to help with the itching, hope it helps you! Sure stinks to wake up itching and to have bleeding sore legs!!
You might ask you doc about a cream steroid call Clobetasol, it is like a magic cream! LOVE that stuff!!! Also something that has really helped me, using a milder soap, get something natural from a natural food store, some good brands are Natures Gate and Dr. Bromer's, or even Tom's of Main, try to get one that has lavender in it, it is wonderful for skin issues even eczema. And also get a thick lotion that again is natural and find one that has oats in it, I love Natures Gate oat lotion. Make sure you apply the lotion often especially right before bed. Try to avoid long hot baths and showers, as it is so drying to your skin. Drink plenty of water and start taking a supplement that has fish oil and flax seed oil in it, that also helps a ton!
Hope that helps you out some!!! Believe me, I have had such dry dry skin for pretty much my whole life and I live in dry Colorado!
Take care and much luck with your pregnancy!!!
