Answer: I faced the similar problem. Try lactocalamine lotion. Also get your LFT done. There are certain liver enzymes which increase during pregnancy and cause itching. If so,doctor will give you a pregnancy safe medicine to reduce them. Also don't wear any jwellery as metals also contribute to itching.

Question: I am having itching all over my body from last few days. Is this normal?
Answer: Hello dear. 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. Take care.
