Question: am getting itching on my belly...wt should i do....anythng happen to the baby if i done scratch
Answer: Hello dear itching is common and normal in pregnancy... If you scratch then there are many stretch marks on your belly... So I suggest you not to scratch.. Itching is the common symptom during pregnancy, that too in last trimester. First thing is do not use any kind of cosmetics right now as it is not considered as safe during pregnancy, and as you are already suffering from eczema.. it will worsen your condition. Apply coconut oil all over your body or wherever the itching is severe. Olive oil doens't suit for everyone , if you want you can give a try in any area and test it, but personally I don't recommend olive oil for everyone. Coconut oil is the best medicine for eczema and it soothes your itching, you can apply it as soon as it is absorbed in your body or jus twice a day. Rose oil also works wonders for eczema, but you can do it at home. Jus add a hand full of rose petals into a cup of coconut oil and heat it in low flame till the petals are burnt or turn brownish. Cool it and use it all over. It's good for hair too. Smoothes the skin more than coconut oil. Rose water also works well for eczema, take a cotton ball, dip in rose water and pat it on any area and test it. If it suits you can continue. Rose water prevents itching even after waxing or shaving (underarms or bikini area). Drink lots of water to make your skin hydrated and always keep your skin moist to prevent excessive itching. Happy Pregnancy!!!
