Itchy itchy itchy itchy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to call the doctor's office as soon as they open because I'm going to scratch straight through to the baby if I don't get something for this. I have a breakout of exzema on my belly and it's so itchy its painful. I'm going to lose my mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could it be PUPPS? I read something about this recently in my pregnancy app? Sounds awful. Hope you get some relief soon.

Hmm .... Elizabeth, I hadn't thought of that. I don't have a ton of redness but that's possible. I think the treatment is the same either way. I'm undecided if I should try something OTC or call the OB's office. I should probably call and get a recommendation either way.

Oh no! Sounds horrible. I would call the OB anyway just to be sure. I hope you get relief soon!

My belly was super super itchy with my daughter but **knock on wood** not this time lol... I just used a sarna lotion and it made it better with my first. Funny she actually has really bad eczema and we always joke that is why!

Oh no, I hope that you get some relief soon! That is soooo uncomfortable to be that itchy. Sad Does a really good lotion (like Aquaphor) give you any relief? I get eczema on my hands, and Eucerine and Aquaphor are both lifesavers.

Hope you get the itchiness to go away. I had eczema too really bad on my hands and I used cetaphil lotion. It was helpful. Hope everything gets better Smile

Sad Were you able to figure something out to help?
My cousin had PUPPS when she was pregnant with her daughter and I remember her being so miserable towards the end. Hope you get some relief soon!

I have some old eczema cream that's getting me by until my next appt. I don't think it's pups because it's not that red or rashy, just really itchy. The cream was prescribed when I was pregnant before too, so it should be ok to use. I really just need to stop being lazy and call.
