Burning skin... (I've had itchy burning hands and soles of my feet) First, I'd spend the money on CeraVe' Soap, it's at the drug store, for your hands and the shower... Also, a 24 hour antihistamine, Allegra is the best then Zyrtec then Clariton, take any of the 3 that you can tolerate. Also, stay out of the heat, bright light bulbs, cover your self with a light shirt and pants.... a hat but you do not need to get heated like sweating....
ive read about the soles of your feet and the palms of your hands becoming splotchy red and itchy while pregnant but mine are strictly the tops. I dont have a rash of hives or anything...the only bumps and cuts on them are from me scratching so much. I initially thought it must be from my feet and hands swelling due to all my water retention...but ive been having issues with the water retention for quite sometime and this itchiness just appeared out of nowhere...

37 weeks pregnant, terrible horrible itching I want to cry every minute everyday! It's so bad I'm starting to get bumps/rash. I did some research today and I think I have PUPPP, my itchiness on a scale is probably 8, it hurts sooooooooooo bad! I'm bringing it up to my doctor next visit. You should tell your OB about it too If it's that painful. I also read that "grandpa's pine tar soap" really helps, find it at walgreens or Walmart. Hope you get better, trust me I feel your pain!

I put the steriod creams all over my feet, then maxi pads to absord all the large amounts of fluid. Hands are still getting the steroid creams, very itchy and small open blister patches still! I am finally being referred to UAB in Birmingham where I hope to get some answers on real diagnosis and/or treatment. It is Feb. 4th 2002 and I am still in the episode that erupted over Christmas and still limp from still peeling/raw feet. I was put on Keflex 500mg 2x/day for 10 days.
