    are they itchy all over?? if so rub some vitamin cream or sorbelene into them

    If it underneath try this powder. Rapaid.. Anti rash relief powder. It has tea tree in it. I get a terrible rash under my breasts in summer but more so when I am pregnant and so far since using a tiny bit of this each morning i haven't got it. i did start to then remembered the powder..

    It does smell a little like flea powder though but some nice deodorant and the smell goes away quickly.. oh and its in woolworths. green bottle white on the top and bottom

    along similar lines....the skin on my belly is really sensitive. It feels like it is sunburnt...but it's not (obviously). When i scratch it, red lines come up really quickly. Is this just due to stretching do you think?

    The best thing for itchy nipples is Lansinoh. And it's perfectly fine to use while pg, and great for when you're BFing!

    I had this - v itchy breasts for a few weeks.. I ended up using dermaveen in the shower and paw paw ointment on the ithciness and it went away after a week or 2... i think it was hormonal. it was unearable - i used to wake up scratching...

    I love the paw paw ointment I used it during b/fing too for dry cracked nipples bla! I've had bouts of itchyness this time around but they're also so sensitive to touch I can't really scratch them so I've gone for the ointment and rub a bit harder

    Danda I would talk to your dr about the sunburn feeling on your belly cause there is a skin condition that some women get during pgcy, at 21wks your belly still has alot more stretching to go!
    Do you put anything on it at the moment like Palmers coco butter or Bio oil?

    Yep itchy nipples here too!! Lulu i had a brush at them earlier hehehe.

    So so itchy but you can't scratch properly cos it hurts. I had a bath with olive oil in it and I think it feels better. Using sorbolene in stead of soap helps too.
