What did he prescribe? When I initially told the doc she said take Benadryl but after reading online didn't see anything concrete that its 99.9% safe...hard to find much that is. I do a whole regiment but still itchy !

Re: Itchy Skin

Sorry to read about the insomnia. I too have trouble sleeping but when I do sleep I have now begun snoring or waking up multiple times. Did your doc suggest anything to help you sleep? What's your due date? Does the choletis go away? Thanks!
