When you're pregnant can you use insect bite relief cream?
It says on back, the usual - 'seek medical advice before use' but I really don 't want to bother a GP if you girls can tell me.
Ta muchly, TC x
PS - Have 4 on my boob (nice!), 3 on my right arm, 2 on left and 3 on leg and they are waking me up at night itching, bloody buggeery mossies!

Don't make me go to bed without cream when I am allowed to use it really, please.

I used antisan cream when PG. Aloe vera gel supposed to be good (bit late for Boots though now.)

I don't know Thomcat - sorry

Can you use either teatree or lavender oil if your pregnant? They are nice on bites

Not much help.....sorry

I Would say use it if you are over 25 eeks pregnanat as baby developed and growing. If under 25 Weeks - I'm unsure - my instinct would be to use it - but I'm no doctor and I've no idea what could be in the cream! Sorry!!!

Hmmm, okay, well I'll use teatree for now and check it with a pharmacist tomorrow.

Are you still itching?

Thomcat Tue 19-Jul-05 20:36:26

Yes I am a bit, have a new one on my ankle and off on holiday tomorrow so will be collecting a few more no doubt!

Try a paste of bicarbonate of soda and water.
