  • It is probably PUPS and it sucks!! I took a lot of baths with Aveeno something. It helped with the itching. There isn't much else to do if it is PUPS. You can check with your OB and see if they have any other recomendations.

  • the aveeno something kmath is talking about is the aveeno soothing oatmeal wash. it does work pretty good. also remember to put plenty of gentle lotion (nothing with fragrance or color) so that you don't have dry skin itch too. some women get itchy and it is very annoying. i think it's worse in the winter bc of the dry air
