When I say lady bits I don't mean my vagina so I don't think that it's thrush. It's specifically where my pubic hair is and only itches in the evening and at night. Any ideas about what it is before I drag myself off to GP?
Thank you! Having already got eczema on my hands and wrists and conjunctivitits so being pretty itchy already I was beginningt think I was imagining it! It's always better when something has a name, isn't it?
Will try some soothing cream and giving myself a bit more ventilation!
What a relief to finally hear from fellow sufferers. I've had the most awful itchy rashy pubic area from week 1 of pregnancy ( now in week 33 !) The GP has given me various creams but none have particularly helped - but with judicious application ( ie my own rotation of jock rash cream, sudicrem, E45 itch cream and another anti-itch cream) I have managed to tame it to some extent. The only thing which has helped me is to try and keep sweat free as much as I can - so no tight fitting trousers but its been no easy feat as I seem to sweat buckets in that area (probably tmi I know!) regardless of how much ventilation I give and did so in my last pregnancy too. At times the scratching has got so bad that I have caused my flaps to bleed and then of course they scab over which ain't particularly nice or attractive . I've always suspected its eczema but have not had the energy to pursue a proper diagnosis.
Hopefully you will find something to ease the itch - good luck !!!
