Why is My Skin So Itchy During Pregnancy
Why is my skin so itchy during pregnancyé That growing belly is stretched by the massunderneath. That's what causes stretch marks. Stretch marks are scars where the skin essentiallytore trying to keep up with the growth. To be fair, guys can get the same stretchmarks if they bulk up their muscles faster than the skin can keep up. So what do you do about ité Do not eat for two when the kid is a pointone, and moisturize the skin often. The latter one might help with the itching.
A lot of women talk about how they get a richglow on their skin, and shiny hair. Odd then that I have itchy skin. If you have y skin, the extra sebum productionrelieves y skin. If you're using lots of soaps to control pregnancy acne causedby 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 sweatersand sweat pants, your skin may be itchy due to the sweat and fungus. A leaking sink faucet grows mold. How couldIé You can get those fungal infections anywhereon 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 stayingwet where you cannot quite get clean.
I cannot see my feet, but I can still reacheverything to get it clean. I'd also wonder if you're getting totallyythe shower, because if you are not, you can get fungal skin infections that makeyou itch. That's a good reason to lay on the babypowder. Too much baby powder irritates the skin, ifyou're ying yourself out. That's as much a guarantee for itchy skin as not yingoff properly. Anything else that could be causing the itchyskiné The palms and soles sometimes get itchy fromextra estrogen, but anyone with eczema finds
it worse during pregnancy. I do not have eczema. If you had psoriasis, pregnancy would actuallylessen the condition. Do not have that either. Then you have to stop taking such hot showers,not using moisturizer, or not ying out your skin properly.
