  • You may see if your doctor can prescribe you some prescription strength hydrocortizone.

    I've known some women who have been induced because the intensity was so bad.

  • I had it with my daughter and now I have it again. My doc said any hydrocortozone cream was fine. I found the Benadryl Extra Strength Anti Itch cream to be the only thng that worked.
