hi dear, please tell your gynec. this problem, sometimes deficiencies can cause itching...

Sonali Shivlani

Discuss this with your doctor. For immediate relief use caladryl lotion as it will reduce the itching. But this is temporary and symptomatic relief. Hence doctor must be consulted.

yes dear..  you should consult your doc for the same.  he will prescribe some cream. My bhabhi use to get such icthing throughout her pregnancy. doc had prescribed mild body soap for bathing n even body lotion.
wear loose clothes.  cotton ones.  see that you dont perspire much.  tc :)

Skin dryness is common in pregnancy. Sometimes this itching and drying will be a big concern than anything else. Cut your nails or file it for smooth edges to avoid skin damage. Apply castor oil before bath and take bath in mild soap. Be careful in bathroom... castor oil is a very heavy, sticky and slippery. Change your soap to mild one. You can even use baby soap, soap from Body shop, dove, oriflamme, pears are good( to name a few). Apply good moisturiser. Above all drink lots of water. Have daily coconut water or eat water melon. You can even use glycerine for immediate moisturisation.

I had the same problem during pregnancy at 3 months and it was so bad that near the sweaty areas I had developed rashes. My doctor suggested to go for LIVER FUNCTION TEST. It came out to be normal and then she suggested to apply calamine lotion. Try wearing only cotton clothes and loose ones. The problem worsens in peak summers. Stay cool. If this doesn't help , then consult a dermatologist.

Hello! I was also suffered from same difficulty few days back. yes of course u should consult your doctor. I was used "Boroline" available n very popular in West Bengal-  A thick antiseptic cream. I apply it 2-3 times everyday. It helped me a lot. N ya cotton cloth only. N don't use any talcum powder.
