I have suffering thru the worst itch of my life, all over, and nothing "appearing" to cause it, I don't see anything, there's nothing red, I just itch ALL over.....The worst is my ankles. I have almost scratched them so much that I may bleed tomorrow! I will be talking to the doc though, cause its the worst! ANy ideas? Anyone know a good oatmill bath recipe? or what do you use?

How far along are you? I got the same itch when I was about 4 1/2 months along. I would soak my feet and hands in ice cold water and use a benedryl cream. Sometimes I took benedryl too. Ice and cold water seem to have worked best for me.

I am in my third pregnancy and have scratched myself to death during all my pregnancies. It starts in very early pregnancy with me, as a matter of fact that's how I know I'm pregnant. Most books say it is from the skin stretching but like I said it happened early on for me. Lotion helps but the best remedy is having someone around who is a good back scratcher. My itching usually goes away shortly after the first trimester. Good luck!! I know it's enough to drive you crazy.
