I had a similar problem when I was pregnant with my first child, DD. One exception though...although I had insane itching, I had no visible rash. I would literally scratch myself until I bled!! After blood tests, the doctor determined that it was caused by my liver over producing some hormone/enzyme due to DD constantly banging her head against my internal organs....she was breach. The only thing they could do to help me was to give me Atarax... it is similar to Bendryl and safe to take during pregnancy. Only problem was that when I took it, I slept for 10-12 hours straight! It knocked me OUT! So, I took it as sparingly as I could as I was still working.

My itching did start clearing up within 24 hours of delivery and was totally gone within 72 hours. I hope you fare as well....or better!!
