  • I itch like there is a no tomorrow at the moment and oddly enough since I first found out that I was pregnant. I keep asking my kids to scratch for me I am sure they are sick of it. That is normal I am not sure about the rash I would mention it to the doctor at your next appointment.

  • Ask your doctor. My cousin had this problem bad.. there was nothing she could do.. but the doctor prescribed her ointment.

  • I had this toward the end of my first pregnancy... I was put on an antihistamine and it took the edge off... but without that I would have ripped my skin clean off!! Talk to your doc for sure.
