    Any recommendations on cream for itching I know a lot say you can't use if pregnant unless consulted a doctor first I'm suffering badly with itching st night I had blood tests today to look for oc which I'll get tomorrow but they haven't give me anything to help with itching I'm currently using aveeno dermexa I think it's okay to use

    Itchy bump or itchy elsewhere? For bump, I've just got some E45 itch cream from boots and it's actually made a difference unlike other things I've tried. I still get itchy, but if I slather it on as often as I remember to (3-4 times per day) then it helps xx

    I'm itchy everywhere too, it's horrid, I think for me it's the changing weather which has made my skin go off kilter. Oats are wonderful for the skin so try putting some in some old tights and tying them round the tap whilst you run a bath.. my Auntie always did this for my cousin who suffered with terrible eczema.. Might give you some relief even if temporary. Moisturisers should be fine i'd only worry about medicated creams but I always find pharmacists mega useful so if you're anxious, ask the pharmacist over the counter and they'll confirm what's safe. Really hope it's not OC and you feel better soon! x

    It's most likely hormones! Try and get a thick cream like E45 itch relief (again, it's working well for me)!

    Hopefully it isn't OC, let us know when you get blood results. xx

    Always get the itch checked out ASAP incase it's a problem with your liver

    Did you get any answers? I'll speak to my midwife on Thursday about my itching. It's mainly my neck then hands then legs then feet in order of annoyance recently started on my belly too. :( I've had liver issues in the past. But I've has issues with pretty much every organ! It seems sometimes my immune system goes a bit crazy and my organs inflame.
