Avatar f tn Let your caregiver know if you develop a new rash during pregnancy, have a worsening skin condition, or feel very itchy all over even if you don't have a rash. Your caregiver will want to see you for an evaluation so she can diagnose the problem, recommend appropriate treatment, or possibly refer you to a dermatologist. Some conditions that cause these symptoms can affect your baby's well-being and require special monitoring.
Avatar f tn today is actually my due date for my first child. I had him at 20weeks. He was stillborn. So im pregnant again and my skin is really itchy. I haven't changed soaps or detergent In at least a yr. I didnt experience this with my first pregnancy. I was just wondering if this is normal?
Avatar n tn It's probably a result of the hormones, which can do that (happened to me with both of my pregnancies). Depending on where you are in pregnancy, there are a couple of other things it could be, but I'd talk to your doctor.
Avatar n tn I have had an itcy neck my entire pregnancy! It's awful and even wakes me up in the middle of the night.
Avatar f tn for sure i hope it isnt .
Avatar n tn I'm 12 weeks 3 days, itching so bad I bleed it's driving me insane,not just the normal stretching of skin, I'm constantly itchy and in pain. had an ultrasound and my liver is larger than 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 n tn Reason I ask is that I know that having a new baby causes much stress and major changes in routine and schedules, and sometimes results in mommy not taking as good care of herself then she is used to (possibly holding your urine longer, eating less, sleeping less, more caffeine, less water etc). Make it a habit to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and see if it changes. It could also just be stress related.
Avatar m tn And good old tonic water has some quinine in it-enough to calm down some folks' symptoms. So in keeping with a desire to try a safe (and in this case cheap) treatment before resorting to a big-gun drug with big-time side effects, give it a try. Mind you, You may need more help-or an entirely different approach. If it doesn't work for you, start with the supplements I mentioned earlier. Opt for drugs as a last resort.

Avatar n tn ) it also says have your doctor prescribe a vitamin A skin treatment.
Avatar f tn If it in fact is severe you would be prescribed some antiallergic medications that can be taken safely in pregnancy. You could apply calamine lotion at the sites of the lesion to help soothe the itching. Let us know how your appointment with the doctor goes and what is advised. Post us about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Regards.
