Answer: Hello, itching on the stomach is normal in pregnancy. That happens because your belly skin stretches as you move ahead with your pregnancy. The stretching causes the surface to get dry, and the moisture-deprived skin tends to get itchy. It happens because of the hormonal changes occurring in your body. you can apply aloe vera gel , coconut oil to reduce your itching also, Oatmeal Bath. Soak oatmeal in the bath water and bathe with it. The soothing properties of oatmeal provide relief from itching. Lemon juice , cold compression, gram flour paste etc you can apply to get releif from itching. Hope this helps.

Answer: Itching during pregnancy can be due to the increase blood supply to the skin which is very common during pregnancy so you can apply coconut oil or calamine lotion for relief but if not relieved then you should get your liver function test done as sometimes it can also be due to the changes in the liver enzymes which is very common during third trimester

Answer: Itching is mainly due to hormonal changes and dehydration too. Keep ur self hydrated and apply good moisturizer to avoid itchiness. Donot scratch if it is itchy as it may cause permanent scars on ur body especially on the abdominal area. Scartching on the abdominal area will cause coloured stretch marks. So keep applying good moisturizers in that area like coconut oil or some recommended products
