My underarms started itching during pregnancy and got even worse once I started breastfeeding. It was almost unbearable and I felt like I needed to scratch right through to the bone. Now at 11 months it has calmed down a little bit, but still occurse while I'm nursing.<br><br>
It is totally weird.
I first started noticing the itching/burning under the armpit when ds was about 8 months or so......still happening at 18 months......<br>
I don't know if this is an old wives tale or not, but I thought I had read somewhere that it could be a symptom of thrush<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> Anyone else hear that before?
