I am 21 weeks pregnant, and had to ring in sick this morning as I couldn't cope any longer with my skin, I can't sleep straight away at night and when I wake up on a morning I have dry blood on my legs where I have itched in my sleep and caused myself to bleed! It has started to get worse, I have had my bloods checked for my liver and all ok. I have been back and forth to the doctors they have given me e45 itch relief cream, Balneum cream, cetraben cream diprobase ointment hydrocortisone ointment, oilatum bath formula, eumovate ointment and finally chlorphenamine tablets. it gets worse when I am hot and eases when I have hardly any clothes on and my skin is cool, but feels like prickly heat! I have been reffered to the antenatal clinic but currently waiting for an appointment, just wondering if anyone has been through this themselves and if so how did they cope? I am itching on my legs, arms, back, stomach, boobs and chest! help please!
