I have just had the same problem with my local Chemist. I am 16 weeks pregnant and have been suffering from ridiculously itchy hands and feet for a month. Blood tests ruled out any liver issues. My GP prescribed Piriton. She said that it was the safest tablet to use whilst pregnant. I've been taking them for a month four hourly most days and I'm down to my last one. My GP is miles away so, rather than traipsing all the way there to ask for a repeat prescription I went to the pharmacist. The lady at the counter asked me if it was for me and was I pregnant, I said yes to both, The Pharmasist said they were not licensed to sell it to me even though you can buy it from most supermarkets. I am so frustrated especially as I know that it takes away 60% of the itching. I had the same problem with Canesten and BOOTS!!!! Tonight is going to be an awful nights sleep. Two nights ago I took the car keys to me feet and cut them to ribbons just to get some short relief. Please ladies. If any of you know anything else I can try other than the ice packs, E45 or Eurax (the risks of the latter are unknown) please advise me. I'm quite literally going mad!!!
Send your OH to get them and lie.
Have you tried aqueous cream? Really basic but quite effective xx
