if you feel that way then stop taking them. you can use coconut to help your dry skin. apply it when you get out of the shower.
you shouldn't have to take meds cause your itching. always ask for natural alternative methods for future concerns. seems like your ob loves to prescribe medication.
If its because you just have extremely dry skin like me my doctor told me to use sensitive skin bar soap by dove and then I use a lotion just a plain no sent lotion mixed with hydrocortisone cream. My skin is still a little itchy but its a lot better than it was. And the dry air from the heat since its getting cold makes it worse so use a humidifier.
Use aveeno body wash..and cortizone cream to relieve the itching it works.
I get severe allergies and use anti - histamines. Although my doctor says they're safe, I only use them when my breathing is being affected or have a severe skin reaction. Otherwise, I try using cold damp cloths to reduce itching/swelling.
I've been on Benedryl for my itching it was so bad I left welts on my body from scratching. My OB said the Benedryl is fine and safe for my baby. I was taking it 3 times a day for about 3 months. Then all of a sudden last week the itching stopped being that bad I'm dowm to 1 Benedryl a day.
