Question:My full body is itching 2much..wat can i do?? Dis is normal or not
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help.
The pregnancy hormones affect the liver's ability to transport certain chemicals, such as bile.
Few of the remedies are:
Take lukewarm showers and baths. Hot water can dry out your skin and make the itching worse.
Stay cool. Avoid going out in the heat of the day because heat can make itching worse.
Wear comfy clothing.
Apply medicines before moisturizing.
Answer: Dear congratualtions on ur pregnancy. Skin problems are quite common during pregnancy due to all the hormonal changes going on inaide ur body.
Mild itching is common in pregnancybecause of the increased blood supply to the skin. ... Mild itching is usually nothing to worry about, but if theitching becomes severe it can be a sign of a liver condition called 'obstetric cholestasis', or 'intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy.
If you're itching because of dry, stretched skin, these simple measures can give you relief:
1.) Apply cold. Put an ice pack or a cool, wet compress on itchy areas for five to 10 minutes, or until the itch fades.
2.) Moisturize with fresh aloe vera gel
3.) Apple Neem oil very effective for rashes
4.) Take a bath with water boiled with neem leaves
5.) Take an occasional warm oatmeal bath.
Hope this works.
Itching is caused to dryness as your skin keeps stretching and also due to blood flow. Apply lotions or coconut oil you should get relief.
Report this to Doctoe he might suspect for some liver test for bile acid but if thats normal it can be hormonal issues.
Every pregnancy is different every body every hormones play too...check with ur gynae still if everything is normal only thing I can say is not to worry Ur baby is fine it's just Ur hormones.
And it will vanish the moment baby is born...things that can help you is taking bath twice a day esp before bedtime,apply good moisturizer,staying in a cool room temp,drink loads of water fresh juices.
