hi im 32 weeks pregnant and my skin is really suffering especially along my jaw line ive tried exfoliating and lots of different spot creams but nothing seems to work is there anything you can reccomend for me to try. ooh and im getting new stretchmarks on my sides (this is my third lo) what is the best to use a cream or an oil to try and help my skin to stretch better as its very itchy thanks in advance

I'm pregnant with my 2nd child and already have awful stretchmarks, which thankfully aren't as bad as they were 18 months ago. My question is though...how can I help my skin to not get as many stretchmarks this time whilst making sure the ones I already do have have chance to rectify themselves properly? Thank you

my almost 9 month old is constant breaking out in rashes and dry skin, can you suggest something to moisturise his already sensitive skin.
Mar 16, 2009 7:58AM
wondered if there was anything you could recommend for me - I'm really really itchy, to the point of it driving me insane and keeping me awake all night - but there are no medical concerns, its just me.
I've tried all sorts of creams to ease the itch - E45, cocoa butter, bio oil, aqueos mint, savlon, creams prescribed by the doc - think they're mild hydrocortisone...
None of them work!!!!!!
Is there anything that doesnt come with a celebrity price tag (ie under ??????10/20?) that i can use?
I itch all over from my head to the soles of my feet and have no respite at any time of the day - cold showers dont work either.
Hoping you can help!

My lo has really dry skin on her tummy and her arms, am using oilatum junior cream and bath stuff, jst wondered if there was nethin else i could do to help her?
Mar 16, 2009 8:11AM
When I gave birth to my daughter faith 17 months ago i had unsightly red stretch marks, i was using bio oil and coco butter but they have only faded the last few months, they are really silvery now, is there anything else i can use to make them fade a bit more?
We are trying for another baby and I really do not want my stretch marks to get worse!
Mar 16, 2009 8:11AM
my lo is 19 months and suffers with really dry patches on her skin. i have exzema so i thought she might get it. can you reccomend a good moisturiser to use on her? we have heard a lot of good things about the new body shop range have you had any experience with these products?
Mar 16, 2009 8:12AM
My 9 month old has excema, he has been prescribed diprobase and hydrocortisone. The hydrocortisone works to clear up his flare ups but they keep coming back as soon as we stop using it. We've tried changing his washing powder and running an extra rinse cycle on the machine in case it's that that's making it worse. Do you have any suggestions for anything else we could try?
Mar 16, 2009 8:16AM
Reading about you on the advert for this webchat it said that you have done alot of research into excema. My daughter suffered from excema, she is 8 months, although she has always had dry skin patches it has been worse since 5 1/2 months and could be related to weaning. If a certain food is causing it, how long would it take to effect her skin? Everytime all her bad patches go, they spring back up in the same spot or somewhere else so we are constantly fighting 'bad patches' which are red, dry and louise is starting to scratch the patches on her tummy when we are dressing her. Any tips to find out what is causing these bad patches? Also, do/did you find bathing in an emolient everyday helpful or is it best to bath less often even with this in the bath? At the ,oment we are using a moisturiser atleast 3 times a day alongside an emolient, both prescribed by a doctor.

My lo is 4 wks old on wednesday, i was told by mw they dont recommend i use any products on his skin till he is 6 weeks.
what would you recommend from 6 wks as he has very dry skin on his arms and legs and forehead But he has oily cheeks
Thanks in advance

Since finding out I was pregnant I have been really suffering with spots, especially on my chin, dry skin on the bridge of my nose and very dry skin on my hairline going into my hair.
I normally have really clear skin and this is not normal for me.
I have been keeping my face clean with clinique face wash and trying not to touch the spots - unless they really need to be squeezed!
Is there anything I can do to help my skin?
Your advice is much apprecaited.
Mar 16, 2009 8:25AM
Hello Mrs Dixon, unfortunately hormonal changes do affect the skin. Try not to squeeze any spots as this will spread the bacteria. Keep the skin clean and use products that are as natural as possible. Our Clear Skin care range with Sage and Mint will help to keep spots at bay and using a dab of Tee Tree or Lavender on the spots does help. Good luck. Janie

Hi M + K, using natural and organic creams are best for your skin. A quick splash with afew drops of lavender and warm water will refresh your skin and as an antiseptic keep germs at bay. Janie
Mar 16, 2009 8:34AM
Hello Clare, once again, hormones are on the move. Our Clear Skin range will help keep spots at bay. We recommend this range to teenagers and it works wonders. For a great natural exfoliator, try Trillium Lavender and Geranium Body polish. Your skin will feel and smell gorgeous. There is no miracle cure for stretch marks, but our Lavera Rose Body oil will go a long way to help. Good luck with babay no. 3. Janie

Hi Sazzy Jay, moisturise, moisturise and moisturise. Your skin is expanding and needs real tlc. Give your tummy the best care by massaging good quality organic base oils with Lavender, Geranium or Rose. Take care. Janie

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
