Posted by Acorea

My sister is in her 2 trimester in her pregnancy and she developed an itchy rash on her tummy. Just wanting to know what creams are safe for her to use for the itch?

If she wants to be using the safest product, she wants to use something that does not contain: parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, petroleum-based ingredients, anything ending in "eth", any artificial fragrance. All of those ingredients are potentially harmful, carcinogenic &/or irritating for a rash.

She might want to discuss the rash with her OB to see if it is PUPPPS, a pregnancy-related rash. There are a number of holistic remedies to PUPPPS, which she can probably find if she does a google search. One is using tar-based soap. A allopathic doctor will probably prescribe a steroid cream, which will be absorbed into the skin & go to the baby...minute amounts, but will still affect the baby.

If she wants a truly organic, natural product, she can search for Miessence Certified Organic products. There is a breast & belly balm that has healing essential oils & other ingredients that are certified organic to food grade levels, so it really is the safest thing on the market. You can learn more about Miessence at my website at
