So the spot here & there morphed into 10, went to see my doc as they were spreading, few days later was back w/20 or so that ITCH SO BAD I CAN'T TAKE IT!! He said it's likely one of 4 different pregnancy skin tortures, like prurigo, and I'm stuck with it at least until I deliver. He prescribed a mid-level topical steriod cream but ha ha frickin ha, the SECOND I touch ONE spot, they all flare up and I want to claw my skin off. They are nasty, spreading, clumped in 3's like triangles, look like pimples crossed with spider bites, on my arms, legs, feet, hands, butt, belly and seriously, I am nearly insane with the itch already. Has anyone ever heard of anythign like this, know if it sounds like a prego skin thing or something else maybe, and the biggie HELP HOW CAN I GET SOME &*^@ RELIEF FROM THIS PLAGUE!!!! I would really appreciate ANY input, ideas, resources...I can't take this, I just can't! Give me chicken pox or poison ivy instead, please! Arrrghhhh
Raising my kids with boundaries - NOT battle lines.

Children are not little adults, but they ARE people too!

There's a reason they are called dependents...

AP is not alternative to those who see no other choice

My little boy had to use one of those topical steroid creams for a year or so because of his eczema and I hated putting it on him because the doctor told me to be careful and only use it sparingly. The poor thing would get flared up red skin behind his knees and itch himself to death. I was afraid to use it much because of what the doctor said - it must not be very safe..
I started working for a wellness company and we have a lotion for serious skin conditions that is 7 times more effective than eucerin. He started using this after his bath and his skin was completely soft and if I use it consistently - no outbreaks. The best thing is that it is an all natural product so I can use it as many times as I want and not worry about any steroids...
It might be worth a try...
