    May have to take a photo to show you ladies. Not nice! My whole tummy is red raw and now the ones on my thighs are puffing up and itching! Also have itchy spots one feet :wall:

    I called triage and as I'm in Monday she said just to wait til then and they'll take more blood if need be. Think I'll make them. The feet thing happened last night. So unbearable not to scratch!

    Anyone else got this?

    My stretch marks under my tattoos are really itchy and sore but not all the time - sounds like you might need to be checked over - I hate itchy feet they can stop you from sleeping and everything

    The feet thing I had and it wasn't OC but something else apparently quite common and harmless it began with a p. Mw said to keep them cool at night like peek them out the covers!

    I don't know about ur stretch marks hope they can give u some cream or summat

    poor thing! Wish could give some advice but I have no idea what creams or that might help. Maybe put your E45 in the fridge for a bit so it is nice and cool putting it on ur stretchmarks?

    Got e45 thanks hun and we've tried a cold flannel tonight. It almost looks like blisters on my thighs :roll: can't wait til Monday so they can properly check over. It's tummy, thighs and feet! I've take an anti hestamine (sp) which I didn't want to do but they said to earlier and I'm so itchy now OH told me to. Think he's shocked at state of my skin. Ah the joys eh?

    I'm gonna recommend steroid cream again. It's not like you'd need to use it for very long only a day or 2? May be worth going to the walk in centre seeing if they'll prescribe something sounds nasty.
