Hi doc,

Breasts started itching yesterday, not whole breast but just underneath. Last night when i took a bath i realised that it was very dry there and when i had a bath this morning it was the same, and a bit red but no pimples or blisters. guess the redness was due to me try to scrub the dry skin off. However when i went to the ladies a few minutes ago it wa still red and itchy but not as dry as i applied alot of lotion there this morning. i havent used any new underwear lately, so what can be the cause of this. should i be concerned and go see a doctor or if not is there any ointment or something that i can use to treat it. i am 14 weeks pregnant. Please advise.

many thanks

Try a bland cream like Vaseline.
