Itchy hands and feet? MissPrettyRikki 1 child; Minnesota 17 posts

did anyone have really itchy hands and feet while pregnant? I'm 35 weeks along... It started really bad yesterday.. I have a big Mayo clinic book it says that's it normal for the palms of your hands and balls of your feet to become red and itchy... just wondering-- and also what you did to stop it? I've tried all my lotions and they don't help.. i have been putting cans of pop in the freezer then holding one in each hand-- it helps for a short time...!!

You can take benadryl...I had an allergic reaction to some antibiotics a few weeks ago and had severe itching everywhere, but especially my hands and feet. Walking barefoot on the carpet made it worse!

I hope all goes well with your pregnancy. I too have been experiencing these same symptoms. I found this website by searching "itchy hands and feet pregnacy" on google. I don't know if this might be helpful to you, but it is worth looking into. http://www.itchymoms.com/symptoms.html
