You Will Need
- Calamine lotion
- Loose-fitting clothes
Avoid drying skin
Avoid drying the skin with hot baths or showers. Take warm baths with oatmeal and mild soap.
Moisturize your skin after bathing with a liberally applied moisturizer.
Use calamine lotion
Use calamine lotion on particularly itchy spots. Store it in the fridge for a gentle cooling sensation.
Wear loose clothes
Wear loose-fitting clothes made of natural fibers to avoid aggravation.
Don’t scratch your itch. Pregnancy hormones may make skin thinner and susceptible to tearing.
