i am currently 15 weeks pregnant and for the past 5 weeks my nipples have been terribly itchy and flaky- this is my 2nd pregnancy - didnt have anything like this first time round.
Dont have itching anywhere else, just the nipple area and nothing seems to take the itch away- have a docs appointment on monday to ask about it but just wondered if anyone is experiencing the same as me and if so do you know what causes it ????
yeah i spoke to my midwife on tuesday about it and she didnt even look at them, just said it was hormonal, but its really getting unbearable and making me lose sleep at night as i am constantly wanting to scratch them and they are now sore with all the scratching
Really hope the doc can give me something to help it on monday or i will be miserable.
God i WISH men could go through just a small portion of the things us ladies do !!! - can you imagine !!
I just asked about this last week on here. My nipples were drying out and were itchy too. It was recommended to use an unsented moisturising cream like E45. I can honestly say my nipples are feeling so so much better now and less "sticky out" too
Oh thank goodness, I thought I was being weird, I too have v.itchy nipples at the moment
I'm currently 16+4 & have had this since probably around 10 or so weeks! They itch like crazy and feel very warm & tender. I've found holding a cold bottle of water or similar against them really soothes them for a bit of quick relief!
