SKIN DURING PREGNANCY: ITCHY SKIN
Sleepless nights with itchy skin are common during the last trimester of pregnancy. The cause of this condition is unknown but it spontaneously resolves after delivery. There are several remedies for this annoying condition:
- Soft, cotton clothes should be worn directly against the skin to minimize itching, while rough fabrics and wool will make the skin itchier.
- Keeping cool, particularly at night, is also important. Use fans and air-conditioners and do not have too many bed covers.
- Bathing in cool, soothing bath oil, such as Alpha Keri, Hamilton’s Bath Oil or QV Bath Oil is helpful, and excessive use of soap should be avoided.
- Cooling creams such as menthol cream and cold compresses are beneficial. It is best to avoid topical anesthetics and antihistamines as they often cause allergic reactions which make the skin itchier.
- Topical cortisone creams can be very helpful and are safe during pregnancy, but should be used only under a doctor’s supervision.
- Oral antihistamines are often needed when the itch causes sleeplessness, and many are safe during pregnancy.
