foot itch...

I am 29 weeks pregnant and for a couple weeks now I have had some severe itchy toes on my right foot. On top, under, and in between my toes. I don't believe its related to pregnancy since my SO had it and that may be where I got it. My concern is what can I use? They are so sore, swollen, and raw from me itching them. My SO went to the store to get me cream for it but the pharmacist said he wouldn't recommend it in pregnancy because it may get into the bloodstream (and my doctor is on vacation). I need something I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! lol

  • Pharmacists won't recommend anything at ALL to a pregnant woman except tylenol. Its pretty much their policy, bc they don't know what kind of complications your pregnancy might come with. However, I used Tinactin while I was pregnant per doctor's orders. You can try baby powder or Gold Bond for the itching. Also, you will want to change all of your and DH's socks bc they can carry the infection and cause it to be worse. Bleach them if nothing else overnight. Good luck and I hope the itching gets better!
