there is a lotion called aquaphor that you can get at wallgreens or cvs. it is a very thick non scented lotion almost like an a&d ointment that I use any time I have itchy skin and it definately works. It only takes a little because it spreads so well... let me know if this works.

I'm not a doctor but I think it is because of the streaching of your skin. I would think you need moisturizing lotion. Ask your doc.
