The change in your hormone levels and the stretching of your skin can make you feel itchy during pregnancy. You will probably notice itchiness across your stomach and breasts – this is quite normal.
How can I soothe the itchiness?
Moisturise your skin well with unperfumed products – you may find due to the extra sensitivity of your skin, your usual products may cause you to be itchier than pre-pregnancy.
Avoid getting too hot as heat rashes can cause the itching to be worse. Wear loose clothing, stay indoors or in the shade if it’s too hot.
