I've sorta been itching all over but theres just one spot on my upper leg and its red and itchy, lord knows I havent been shaving my legs as much(ewww lol, if I did I would have to shave everyday, my hair grows way too quick now!) maybe there just drier now
Probally! I haven't shaved my legs in a while, never really had a reason to, I stopped shaving my legs like last year, lol. I dont mind them, 'cuz the hair isn't so thick and stuff so i'll justl eave it, I dont want them to get thicker. And about the dry thing, I never put any lotion on my legs! So mine are pretty dry, too, lol.
Eww you know what, i'm starting to itch all over my body now. I just took a bath!
Im a lotion freak, I always put lotion on everywhere I can when I get out of the shower! Haha sh*t if I let my leg hair grow out for a year i'd look like a man from the waist down! Lol....Oh yea only I wouldnt have a dick!
Dont worry girls, hehe it is completely normal to itch during pregnancy. Its the most common symptom also.
Try some of these:
wear loose cotton clothing. Tight lycra has a lot to answer for!
Itching may be soothed by dissolving a cup of bicarbonate of soda in your bathwater.
try dabbing calamine lotion onto itchy skin - especially soothing if you keep the bottle in the fridge.
A few drops of lavender oil (in the last three months of pregnancy) and/or tea tree oil in your bath may also offer relief from itching, whether or not there is a rash. Tea tree oil has proven medicinal benefits; consult packaging and enclosed literature to find out more. If in any doubt, ask your pharmacist or a qualified aromatherapist.
treat sweat rashes by washing frequently in cool water, and sprinkling on non-perfumed talcum powder. Your pharmacist may be able to suggest other safe treatments.
if a rash does not improve with these simple measures, consult your doctor. Specific anti-fungal or other treatments may be appropriate. Alternatively, she or he may prescribe antihistamine cream or tablets.
Dont use benadryl unless its perscribed because it can be bad for the baby. Ive been dealing with an allergic rash on my tummy. The last tim eit happened it was all over my body it was much worse then chicklen pox and its starting to come back...So im using neosporine give it a try!
