Why is My Skin So Itchy During Pregnancy?


Why is my skin so itchy during pregnancy? That growing belly is stretched by the mass
underneath. That’s what causes stretch marks. Stretch marks are scars where the skin essentially
tore trying to keep up with the growth. To be fair, guys can get the same stretch
marks if they bulk up their muscles faster than the skin can keep up. So what do you do about it? Do not eat for two when the kid is a point
one, and moisturize the skin often. The latter one might help with the itching. A lot of women talk about how they get a rich
glow on their skin, and shiny hair. Odd then that I have itchy skin. If you have dry skin, the extra sebum production
relieves dry skin. If you’re using lots of soaps to control pregnancy acne caused
by the same oil production, it can leave your skin itchy. I do not think that’s it though. If you are wearing a lot of tight clothes,
that can chafe the skin. All I’m wearing now is maternity clothes. If you’re wearing thick woolen sweaters
and sweat pants, your skin may be itchy due to the sweat and fungus. A leaking sink faucet grows mold. How could
I? You can get those fungal infections anywhere
on your body. And all the extra skin oils and sweat from hot flashes – I’m pregnant, so no hot flashes. Hot and sweaty skin under your loose clothes,
irritation and sweat trapped under a maternity bra that does not quite fit, or just staying
wet where you cannot quite get clean. I cannot see my feet, but I can still reach
everything to get it clean. I’d also wonder if you’re getting totally
dry in the shower, because if you are not, you can get fungal skin infections that make
you itch. That’s a good reason to lay on the baby
powder. Too much baby powder irritates the skin, if
you’re drying yourself out. That’s as much a guarantee for itchy skin as not drying
off properly. Anything else that could be causing the itchy
skin? The palms and soles sometimes get itchy from
extra estrogen, but anyone with eczema finds it worse during pregnancy. I do not have eczema. If you had psoriasis, pregnancy would actually
lessen the condition. Do not have that either. Then you have to stop taking such hot showers,
not using moisturizer, or not drying out your skin properly.

    Difficult to understand exactly what the computer voice is saying. Personally I find the usage of computer voices to be annoying.
