Right after I had my baby, my head started getting itchy!!! Now I’m 4 weeks past delivery and it’s driving me crazy! I’m scratching my scalp and back of my neck constantly, I could dig my nails right inot the skin and I still get no relief! Does anyone know what this is?!
I’ve tried head and shoulders shampoo which didn’t help at all. I had an epidural, could it be related to that?

Women often lose a good amount of hair after giving birth- I know I did with my 1st baby. I wonder if your condition is related to that?

I know when I first got pregnant I got soooooo itchy! My arms, shoulders, scalp, face, chest! Lol and I couldn’t use t-gel shampoo because of the coal tar and what it may do to the baby… Or steroid lotion..Anyway! My doctor thought it was hormone related. So maybe your hormones are being crazy? I’m hoping when I give birth in two weeks I don’t get the itchies again.. I would literally wake up digging at my arms/scalp, I even had my mom check me for lice! Haha

@Sunshine09: Are you breast feeding? Could you take a Benadryl?

The hormone changes after delivery give a lot of women dry skin, and can also make you lose some hair. It’s probably a combination of the two. It should go away on its own, but I don’t know what to recommend in the mean time. :/

It’s probably hormones but just to throw this out there… Is it possible you caught something in the hospital? Not likely but if its really bad you might want to check its not lice or something.
