Pregnancy Pregnancy
Help Someone,
I have been having the worst dry skin lately. I went to the doctor and he said it not a pregnancy symptom. The crazy part is I have never had his problem before. I bought an expensive bottle of jernagens and still my skin peels. I use hydrocortisone, a and d ointment but nothing seems to works. Also my stretch marks look like bruises. My skin is out of control, dry and itching. I have a lot of red marks from where my skin is peeling and now it's starting to burn. When I can I do to make my skin rehydrate and prevent future stretch marks. And advice is good. Pleas help.

Try olive oil. It's a thicker oil, but its also one of the healthiest oils you can put on your skin. Try right after showering so that it keeps more moisture in. I've been using it to help keep my belly from getting stretch marks...seems to be working so far.

Coconut oil.

Hands down the BEST thing I have ever used, for anything.

I would go see a dermatologist.

What kind of vitamins are you taking? I would drink plenty of water, too.
