How about camomile lotion or your fav lotion with some cortizone cream?

Yes - stop scratching!!! It's itchy because the skin is stretching so much. Use gobs and gobs of hand lotion. I would definitely not suggest cortizone cream or anything with any chemicals in it. Just keep your favorite hand lotion with you at all times and apply liberally. Just as some relief - once your belly stretches all the way out with your first, you probably won't get as itchy the second time around.

You might check with doc to see if its PUPPS...its a rash many pregnant women get. I had a rash early on in my pregnancy but it was just irritation to something...my doc had me using topical benedryl on it...put it in the fridge first for a while before putting it on and it was wonderful. Also Mandamariieex3 is right the Palmers lotion is wonderful...I have used it through most of my pregnancy. Good Luck!!!
