Itchy Rashes Anyone?

I have a terrible itchy rash since the hormones kicked it. It's all up my arms and on one hand. I've been using a natural salve but it's just not going. A couple days ago I started putting calamine on the itchy parts so that at least it wasn't getting broken open by scratching. Coconut oil makes it worse I was thinking of trying Vit E oil or that mama's belly stuff.

Anyone have something that's working for them that's not full of chemicals?

You know I was having weird itchy issues under my arms for awhile, you just reminded me of it. I didn't put anything on it and used an all natural deoderant. It went away by itself.

I have been having random itchy spots on my arms and legs that I will itch mindlessly while reading a book or something but they go away by themselves so I haven't' put anything on them. I wonder if its extra dry skin or something?

Well I have an itchy rash but it is because of an allergic reaction.

Could yours be some mild reaction?

I have a similar problem. One of my arms is itchy. There is no visible rash but my itching does occasionally result in small sores on my arm. I noticed it all during my last pregnancy as well. By the end of my last pregnancy my arm was covered with sores from my itching. I'm trying extremely hard not to itch it this time. Occasionally I can get some relief from hydrocortisone cream. I try to wear long-sleeves and just tell myself to leave it alone. I guess an itchy right forearm is just a pregnancy symptom for me

Re: Itchy Rashes Anyone?

Have you tried an oatmeal bath? Calendula cream by California Baby at Target works well. I always break out in a rash on my ring finger when pregnant so I have to stop wearing my wedding ring. Last time it didn't kick in till 5 months, this time it kicked in even sooner.
