  • coconut oil is great

  • First, pure aloe to soothe (the best are the ones without additives) But something like Lily of the Valley 99% aloe is sufficient.

    Then a pure oil - commercial oils are loaded with additives that are itching and drying -- go raw shea butter, or pure cocoa butter, or virgin coconut oil. (these oils are all high in vitamin E)

    Apply several times a day.

  • I used the motherlove line of belly oils and salves. Google motherlove if you want more information. I started using cocoa butter but found very little relief for my growing belly. I was pregnant with triplets and horrified about getting bad stretch marks. I never itched because my belly stayed lubed up and the oils didn't stain your clothes. I used the pregnant belly oil and salve twice a day and didn't get one stretch mark, yes even pregnant with triplets. They use a mixture of all natural oils, but I didn't buy it because it was natural; I bought it because it came highly recommended from my OB.

  • put some god bond itch powder or some lotion. I had the same problem and lotion worked for me.
