Just a Question...

Has anyone during the last trimester ever experience HORRIBLE ITCHING right above and around the top of the pubic hair line? It drives me absolutly INSANE!!! I have had this for awhile now but never thought much of it..now I can't stand! Any advice on what to do or what may cause this? Thanks! <p>[This message has been edited by qtpie2003 (edited 02-15-2003).]

Re: Just a Question...

Likely stretch marks (sorry!!) Try some moisture lotion or Aveeno for the itch - nothing for it to keep stretch marks away, but at least you will be comfortable. If it seems to be a rash, or extends to your thighs, belly, considder PUPPS. Nothing to be done for that either, but your doctor could prob give you some cream for it.

Hope that helps!

Re: Just a Question...

I'm finding that my whole stomach is really itchy now (I'm due in less than 4 weeks). I find that cocoa butter wors really well to stop it because it's so thick. I think the itching is due to how stretched out your stomach becomes during the last tri.

Re: Just a Question...

Thanks for all the replys..I just bought a whole new bottle of Cocoa Butter so I will start using that. I have been using Cortizone 10 for the itching. What is PUPPS? Anything I should worry about??
