Question: Hi I'm 32 weeks pregnant and i am getting itching problem all over my body. So is it 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.
