Question: Itching near vaginal area is it normal
Answer: Hello dear, vaginal Mild itching is common in pregnancy because of the increased blood supply to the skin, few tips which will help you to get some relaxation.Try holding a cool rag or towel up against the vaginal area. Do not use hot water on the rag or it could further irritate the tissue. Switch to cool showers and not hot to keep from raising the body temperature. Hot water is very hard on sensitive skin and tissues. You can either make a baking soda paste or add it to your bath water. Soak the area for 10 to 15 minutes to help relieve inflammation and itching. You won’t fit into those tight jeans your entire pregnancy or non-maternity underwear. Do not wear any materials with lycra or spandex as they can trap moisture in close to the skin.wear cotton panty and avoid those fancy once. Use mild soaps, shampoos, laundry detergents and skip the bubble baths for now. You can use vinegar as a fabric softener as a natural alternative and leave out the harsh vaginal washes during pregnancy. The fragrances and chemicals can make the problem worse.For a quick refresh during the day, you can try a personal wipe after using the restroom or during the day to relieve itching.
