  • I did on my belly (it was a skin itch, had nothing to do with baby movement). Lotion did not help either.

  • @Randibosin-thanks I feel a alittle bit better knowing someone else had this and it went after birth? What did your doctor recommend to do to relief the itching on body and scalp? My doctor said benadryl is okay to use. That doesnt really help that much though! So it felt like your skin (scalp and body) were itchy and the crawling sensation as well? Those two things combined are driving me nuts.
