Okay maybe not allergic but my soles of feel and palms are red, cracked and itch like crazy from a liver enzyme condition due to pregnancy. Only1% of women get this nd i got it BAAAAAD!!!! Sleep maybe two n half hours a night, waking to bleeding skin from scratching and take two to three baths in middle of nite to help soften the blow of the torment. Tried calomine lotion, goldbond, and hydrocortisone to just help relieve it a little with NO success. Anyone else have this issue? Its driving me insane. Im 33 and have bags under eyes of a fifty yr old from stress n lack of sleep. Gonna end up in mental institution if this doesnt let up... Any advice PLEASE???? Thanks... Pregger momma going through itch hell!!!

I'm sorry you are going through this, I've never heard of it before so I don't have any advice. Hugs!

Would shea butter or something along those lines help any?

I have no idea if it would actually work or not but coconut oil?

This is what I was thinking or Vitamin E Oil.

A mineral oil like argan oil... Maybe wax treatment...

I had cholestasis when I was pregnant too. The only thing that helped was taking cold baths, believe it or not. They sucked, but at least the itching went away for a few hours.

The itching went away immediately after I gave birth.

Good luck and hang in there!

I had PUPPs when I was pregnant, a similar "allergic to the fetus" condition. It was brutal. The best I can recommend is oatmeal baths for the itching and my OB let me take Benadryl as well. Unfortunately, mine got worse after DS was born and I ended up having to get steroids to clear it up. Totally different scenario for mine, it sounds like.
