***breaking news!*** we are delighted to welcome actress @helenrgeorge as our new patron!
helen says: “i am delighted to be a patron for icp support and promote their work. i knew about icp because a family member developed the condition in their pregnancy, so when i started itching i was tested and reassured when the tests came back normal. but when my itching got worse, although i was worried, i was hesitant to contact the hospital because i’d only recently had a normal blood test and couldn’t quite believe that my bloods would have changed that quickly. talking to someone at the charity who confirmed this can happen meant that i immediately took action and called the midwife - less than 48 hours later i was diagnosed with icp and wren was born!” #patron#raisingawareness#itching#savinglittlelives#icp#icpsupport#charity#support#itchinginpregnancy#pregnancyitch#mums#pregnancy
I got stung by a bee a 3 days ago. very oddly, it took 24 hours before i had any reaction to it, and then my hand blew up. i couldn't even wear my wedding rings. i tried a lot of oils which helped with the pain and itching, but my hand continued to swell despite also using antihistamines. it required a trip to the doctor as it was into my wrist by yesterday afternoon and i couldn't bend my 4th and 5th fingers. he prescribed me steroids and antibiotics. i'm not keen on either, but sometimes you actually do need them. especially as i've had cellulitis once before and ended up in hospital for 5 days over christmas with it!
i was recommended to try to wait until this morning to take the steroid. so last night i just lathered it in lavender. it's soothing, has natural antihistamine properties and helps with the itch. slept through the night and woke up to my hand almost back to the same size and no more itch. yay! so i'm happy that i've avoided using steroids. i've brought them to work with me just in case.
