I have another thread on here about itching and being tested for Obsetric Cholestasis. My results came back normal but I still have this itching.
It is everywhere and I am starting to fear for myself with it.
My feet are bandaged as I have taken patches of skin about 2 inches long and an inch thick missing from both feet. My legs and arms and hands are all bloody.
I'm not sleeping. Last night was the longest I have slept and I still woke up through the night itching and woke up this morning with bloody hands.
They said I need to wait for a dermatologist appointment but yesterday said I might go crazy before I actually get one.
I've already had numerous problems through this pregnancy, is there nothing they can do? Am I actually going to be left like this even though I am obviously causing great distress to myself ripping all of my skin off?
A&E will take it seriously. I went at 28 weeks for something wrong with my eye and I saw an ophthalmology consultant the next day. And it wasn't even my NHS Trust. Go and see them. You shouldn't be left like this. It's stressing you out and stress is not good in pregnancy. There'll be someone they can page/get you referred to v quickly.
You poor thing. Agree A&E and don't leave until they can help you. I had itching and it's mentally crippling too. I got them to knock me out with t he antihistamine, it was the only way to not scratch.
Mew - A&E. NOW. it's likely it's nothing serious, but it could be a sign of a couple of other things. Go and be safe. (now, I am not posting this to scare you, but I thought it might help. skin conditions in pregnancy
Feeling slightly better. Started putting the cream on this morning and it seems to be working a little.
Still didn't get too much sleep last night, my family are saying they're hearing me moaning and almost screaming loudly in the night. I wake myself up moaning while I'm clawing but didn't think I was that loud!
Not much help with the actual itching, but I ended up gaffa-taping oven gloves to DH's hands overnight a few weeks back. He had a severe allergic reaction allover (literally allover too) and was very itchy. Good luck schrodinger
