Q:

Hi momies.. I am 17 weeks pregnant, I feel itchiness especially on breasts & tummy. It gets embrassing when you are at work & I feel so much of heat. plz suggest some remedy.

Summers get the itching at its worst. This is normal and you can try wearing loose clothes preferably of breathable fabric like cotton. Do not wear inners that are tight and lead to sweat.  Your doctor may also prescribe you a good anti irritant lotion that is soothing even when you go to work. Apply it regularly post bath on areas where it itches. :)

My friend used themomsco body butter when she faced the same problem. She was very happy after using it...Though it's thick in nature but trust me it really helps.
