I can't help sorry but you might find a pharmacist more helpful than a GP, they're the experts when it comes to skin complaints smile

Is it just itchy or is the skin red and/or changed?

My eczema has gone wild since I've been pregnant, it's horrible! I use an emollient (cetraben) a few times a day which keeps it at bay - no atopic steroids allowed when pregnant.

Cotton clothes, cool showers/baths and try not to scratch
