Answer: Hello dear. It wouldn't affect the baby. Mild itching during pregnancy is normal in most cases. You may feel especially itchy around your belly and breasts as your skin stretches to accommodate their increased size. Dry skin and hormonal changes may also contribute. You can apply moisturizer. Take care.

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.
