The itching is probably a symptom of your skin stretching. I have used olive oil as well as Aveda oil on my body (mainly stomach, hips, b___tocks, and b___sts) during my entire pregnancy, and have not yet had one stretch mark! It works well!!

has anyone else had terrible itching on their scalp as well as all over body itching. This is driving me crazy. This is the most odd pregnancy woe

i have the same problem and my doctor recommended me to use calamine lotion, benadryl cream, or cortizone cream to help with the itching. i use benadryl and it seems I apply it on almost every 30 minutes but it does help with the itching.

I am still in my first trimester and i am itching all over my body even my scalp i donno what to do it is driving me crazy is it normal

Itching is normal to a certain degree, but there is a pregnancy condition a__sociated with this and you should have your doctor check to be sure. The cocoa shea b___ter formula lotions work well, they sell them at all pregnancy clothing stores or babies r us.

I applied Aveeno lotion a couple times a day, but it didn't do much for the itching (and I still got stretchmarks). Cortisones just dry the skin more, but help with rashes. Getting sun seemed to help me a little, although I still itched like crazy at night. I take a benadryl antihistime at night to knock me out.

I told my doctor that I can't stop itching, and he sent me for some blood work to check my liver function. Everything was okay, but you 'scratchers' may want to bring it up at your next prenatal check-up. It could be something serious.

DONT SCRATCH YOUR BELLY!!!you will nasty stretchmarks like me...try drinking alot of water or try cocoa b___ter lotion from stretch marks. i had a rare disease(atleast thats what i call it) called PUPPPS not an MA yet so here is a website you can go to for more accurate info..

I bathe with Aveeno bubble bath soap. It worked great for me. And I use that coacoa b___ter for the belly. I know that stretch marks are genetic but that lotion keeps my skin moist and my skin doesn't itch. My scalp itches too. Until I read this board I just thought it was just me and it never dawned on me that it could be a pregnancy thing.
