any cures for itchy pregnant skin, particularly.. scalp. Oh my. goodness. it’s awful. doesn’t even have to be natural and how long does it last? using dandruff shampoo doesn’t even last the whole day. and yes I’m SURE it is dry scalp please don’t suggest anything else. I have enough pregnancy paranoia as it is…
Oh my gosh, I am getting itchy just thinking about this. That was one of the worst things for me during pregnancy – it would literally keep me up at night! Skipping soap & using a mild cleanser helps, as does moisturizing before leaving the shower, and throughout the day. Coconut oil is an excellent choice. I’ve tried all sorts of moisturizers & oils and none fully relieved the itch. I’d consider massaging coconut oil into your scalp an hour or so before showering, then wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo to avoid stripping your scalp.
The itching was so unbearable, I can’t even imagine dealing with something like PUPPP!
