Hey everyone. I'm just looking to see if anyone else has had poison ivy or oak while pregnant. I've had it before but only little dots here and there. I got into some of it while doing some yard work and had a severe reaction to it. I've been in agony the past two weeks from it.
It's mostly drying up now but I am still so very very itchy. My Dr prescribed me a steroid cream. I have also been taking oatmeal baths, cleaning my skin with witch hazel, using ivy dry and calamine lotion, and taking benadryl.
It sucks because I wake up in the middle of the night itching and have to get up to apply something to all of it. I have it everywhere, started on my arms, now on my legs and stomach.
Any other suggestions or am I doing everything I can being that I'm 28 weeks pregnant?
And I'm only this concerned about it because I get married on Saturday and don't want my arms and legs looking on splotchy. Ugh. 😢😭
