I am 2 months from my due date with my second daughter, and “the itch” has begun!!! I’ve gained a lot of weight in the pregnancy (Been through LOtS of emotional junk). My lower belly is SO itchy! I’m doing lotion, I just bought cocoa butter, but nothing helps so far. Anyone, PLEASE give me any home remedies or medications or ANYTHING!
I had to go to a dermatologist and get a steroid ointment.
Talk to your doctor it could be something serious
I would definitely mention it to your doctor asap, just to be safe, and make sure it’s not cholestasis.
Aloe seems to help, also cocoa butter
The special pregnant belly lotion helped me.
I had pupps with my oldest super itchy and had red bumps everywhere head to toe the only thing that helped was vagisil cream
Could be cholestasis. Get tested cause it’s a serious issue
Check with your doctor. Severe itching that you can’t get rid of can be a sign of serious issues.
aquaphor helped me. It helped at night so much
Jergan’s lotion relieves itching
Coconut oil or cocoa butter
Be sure to check with your doctor about possible Cholestasis
If it’s on more than your belly, you need to be tested for Choliostasis of Pregnancy. 13 years ago my OB hadn’t heard of it so my diagnosis took longer than it should have, but it’s necessary. The itch comes from your liver shooting off excess bile that you’re body then cannot metabolize. It can hurt the fetus’ heart and kidney growth.
It’s a simple blood test.
Unfortunately they can only give you meds so you don’t get gallstones, but it means you have to be monitored very closely.
The best way to stop itching is a warm bath. The bath calms your skin.
wheat germ oil (vitamine E)
Avenue oatmeal bath.
Vitamin A&D and your stretch marks cream.
Please call your doctor! It could be way more serious. My friend had choliostasis and needed medical intervention
Please get tested for cholestasis! I thought my itchiness was nothing but i tested positive for it!
