Itchy skin early pregnancy symptom

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin early pregnancy symptom


405855 tn?1217104367 not sure why it happens but it's actually a symptom of pregnancy (itchy tummy and nipples) and the bigger your stomach gets the more itchy you can get! Try using oatmeal lotions or lotions w/oatmeal in them, chamomile too. Those are both calming agents and work wonderfully!
Avatar n tn Is itchy skin an symptom in early pregnancy? I recently started itching all around my belly, sides, and arms..sometimes even my scalp is itchy. Is this common/normal?
Avatar f tn I had the same thing its a very rare pregnancy condition more common towards the end of pregnancys but if happens in early pregnancy can be dangerous. The only cure is delivery. They induced me at 38 weeks because of this. Everyone kept telling me it was allergies or pregnancy itch and i was soo fed up and exhausted (because i couldnt sleep) i researched and found info about this and my mom n bf thought i was google crazy lol.
Avatar f tn And also I have been told by the doctor to take early HPT to determine pregnancy as early as possible. I have had a chemical pregnancy which doctor suspects was due to low progesterone as my BBT is always in the lower range than normal with a cycle of 25-26 days. So the sooner I know I am pregnant the easier it will be to keep the baby. I read many women's stories of rashes very early in pregnancy. Since this thing never happened to me before I started making assumptions.
7818752 tn?1401064908 I had every symptom possible. I had cramping, breast tenderness, nausea, food adversion, itchy skin, headaches, crazy mood swings, extreme fatigue, and drown discharge. It didn't always happen at the same time. I would almost always have two symptoms at once but I always felt not myself until 14 weeks. I woke up one day and felt like I had not eating for days. I am 26 weeks now and it's much better. I have new symptoms but they are more tolerable.
Avatar n tn my dr told it's a yeast infection and just to take call your doc, it might be the same thing. it's very common in early pregnancy...hope this helps!
Avatar f tn Now I'm having itchy skin all over (which I read can happen in early pregnancy). I took a hpt, and it came back negative. But I still have this feeling that I could be pg. Drs appt in the am!
Avatar f tn I was reading your experience of itchy legs and other members comments. It is true what you have is exercised inducec urticaria. It is caused by a rise n body temp and can happen in the heat or cold inside or out and the bottomline is if you don't treat it you feel like you want to vomit or jump out of your skin. I have the same thing and has worsened as I have goten older. It is like an allergen/antigen reaction. I have allergies anyway so I take a zyrtec daily.
431894 tn?1216659546 I am in my 25th week of pregnancy and am starting to suffer from really bad dry, itchy skin on lmy upper legs, mostly thighs and buttocks. Its so dry that the skin is cracked and leaving brown shaded marks where the skin has become very dry. Am using E45 cream wash and lotion, the past 3days which has helped soothe the itch but the dryness seems to be getting worse and spreading to my lower legs. Feels as if all the moisture in my skin has been sapped away. Help!
Avatar f tn all itchy arm sufferers....please look into brachioradial pruritus. My arms, and only my arms, have itched for 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs.

Avatar n tn Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in numbness or anything on the back of my leg.
Avatar n tn I also have psoriasis, although it is very mild compared with some cases, so I am used to having to deal with itchy skin, but this is something different. I haven't been anywhere exotic or know of anyone else with the symptoms. I have had some emotional stresses over the past 2 months. Another symptom I am experiencing is a tight chest and difficulty breathing. Does anyone have anything similar and do youthink it is worth visitng my GP?
Avatar m tn Interestingly, the skin heals almost immediately after the wheat clears out of your system. As bad as my skin looked, I thought it would take days or weeks to heal. In fact, as early as the next day all the redness and inflammation were gone. Do a Google search about anal itching and wheat allergies. You'll be a believer. Better yet, give up wheat!
Avatar n tn I recently had try skin on my finger which turned itchy and became broken skin. At first I thought it was beause I had been itching it but I kept it clean and used e45 cream regularily. After about 2 weeks I discovered tiny little rough skin spots which were sometimes itchy, through touches my feet and hands it has spread. I've been told its dermatitis or maybe something else. The spots are not sore just itchy and hardely noticable. Seems similiar to what happened to you..
Avatar n tn Shamefully, for almost 8 years I have been getting very small itchy blisters on various spots on my arms and legs. The small blisters develop and immediately itch intensely, which is how I know they're there. They have a clear fluid inside, with no puss. When I scratch them in my sleep or when they break, they often weep a little amber colored liquid. Also, when I scratch them, more tiny blisters will develop around the original blister, signifying an infection.
Avatar n tn I am 19 years old, and I too have this symptom... the itchy labia, though mine are the labia minora; and no discharge, smell, or burning... unless I scratch it. When it first started itching, I was able to resist scratching and I expected it to burn something awful when I urinated, because I suspected a UTI; however, it didn't burn like a UTI, so it wasn't that. It's been itching on and off for three days, so I decided to google it to see if I could find any sort of help.
Avatar n tn Hi everybody, i have the same problem, skin tags after my pregnancy. They bother me so much. I found this website I spoke to somebody in there it sound very good. It's very expensive. The whole thing is about 1,5 K. That's what they say about procedure: Our banding procedure works by cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid. This causes the hemorrhoid to shrink and fall off, typically within a day or so.
Avatar f tn Also they say a lot of stress and worrying about pregnancy is not good. Thats why so many ppl have unexpected pregnancy they weren't making it a job. It will happen just be patient and have faith. I'm trying to but its so hard and I know. So her lately me and dh have just been doing other things to get out mind off of it!! Also got a ? though... Okay I'm on cd 12 should me and dh bd for the next 3 nights to up my chances?????
Avatar n tn I took two home pregnancy tests when it came up positive I went to the hospital because I freaked. Well I'm pregnant. The problem is it is to early to tell is it is a tubal pregnancy or not. So I wait.
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms (red swollen eyelids, both top and bottom, red swelling on the skin to the outside of the eyes, flakey, dry itchy too) for about 5 weeks. I thought it was becuase I am newly pregnant (hormones?) - have tried the baby soap and have been not wearing makeup, washed all my makeup brushes, changed pillow case more often and nothing is helping. However, Aveeno HAND cream does help with the dryness and itching a bit, but it does not cure it.
Avatar n tn Hi there, I have had symptoms since last June (07) that I have had all infectious conditions ruled out. I am now looking at biopsy of the vulvar skin to uncover some answers, so I wanted to post here to see if any other women have gone to a dermatologist and had results. I have posted on the women's health forums here, but since i have ruled out std's, fungus, bacteris, yeast, hormone levels, strep-B, etc etc, this is clearly a skin issue.
Avatar n tn With my first child I took one of those stupid early pregnancy tests (the ones you can take 3 days before your missed period) and it came up negative. I then took one at my Obgyn's office the day my period was supposed to start and it was negative. My doctor advised me to wait 3 days and to test again. I did and it was finally positive. The one thing I noticed when I finally tested postive was that there was a noticable difference in the way my urine smelled.
Avatar m tn NOT sure about that, but I did hear that that sensation in the legs is a symptom of that, and that in some cases, the skin crawling sensation can occur all over the body, not just the legs, and still be considered RLS. Undecided about RLS possibility. The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane.
Avatar n tn Blocked tubes so I am definately concerned that if I am pregnant that it could be a tubal pregnancy. I am only 6 days late but with the other 2 pregnancies had early positives. Now I took a home test when I was 3 days late- negative and a blood test 5 days late- negative too. They wanted to start me on provera but I wanted to do a little research first.
Avatar n tn So, it is also possible you could be receiving a positive result due to the Ovidrel shot, not due to pregnancy. Wishing you the best of luck.......I am rooting for you!!!
Avatar m tn It sounds like a whole lot of misery for you. for the itchy skin, did you try QUELL lotion (over the counter item)--maybe scabies. Or cortizone cream? For the things crawling out your anus (maybe pinworms). ask your doctor for a prescription for Vermox or Mebendazole(by Rx only). In general, just google MORGELLONS SYNDROME or Morgellons disease and see if it fits you. I do not think you are imagining what you are feeling.
Avatar n tn If i wear socks and shoes it happens (dont understand why). I also have itchy skin all over. Its very intense but there is no redness or swelling there. My scalp itches incessantly even though there is no redness, swelling or flaking. In fact its like my hair folicles are on fire at times. It feels so deep and intense. I have to take a 24hr antihystamine every day which is expensive. It is the only thing that relieves it.
Avatar n tn I heard that CM increases with pregnancy.....I don't remember getting this with my son in my early pregnancy, but then again that was 10 years ago. I was pregnant in the spring and miscarried, but I am pretty sure I had extra CM at first. Who knows....good luck, maybe this is it for both of us. Let me know your results.
