I got it last summer, and it looks like I've got it again! I used to be extreamly allergic to it, and would have to take a round of steriods to help me deal with it. Last summer thankfully I kept it under wraps and used as many products as I could to dry it out.<br><br>
Anyone think I should call my MW and let her know? I hate bothering her for little things, but I won't see her again until the 18th, and if it is PI, then I'm gonna have it bad by then!

I would call her. I'm not sure what is all safe to use, or what that type of infection will due to a pg body ya know. I say give her a call, it can't hurt.<br><br>
sorry you have PI, its such a PITA. I hope it goes away soon for you!!

I'd say call your midwife, not only to let her know but to see if she has any suggestions as to products to use that are safe during pregnancy. You never know, she may have some good ideas to offer you relief.

Oh yikes!! I had that a few months back and was all freaked because I thought it was PUPPS. I hope it goes away soon!

Oh man, well, I don't know what PUPPS feels like, but I do know what PI feels like.<br><br>
I did call her, left her a message, so she'll call me back eventually. I put what we had on it, hydrocortizone cream, because I figure right now, it's worth the risk to try to limit how much it spreads! I've had it spread to my whole body after just one morning of scratching, so I put it on when I got up and haven't been TOO itchy.<br><br>
I just know I'll do everything I can to keep from going on a round of steriods!

You could try an oatmeal bath til she returns your call. Not sure if that really does help or not, but I've heard many people say they've tried it.
