Answer

Hello Ali

Yes itchy skin comes with pregnancy. I remember being very itchy on my belly as I entered into my third trimester. If you get hot and sweaty you can also get prickly heat.

Here is a very good article about itchy skin and rashes during pregnancy from the BabyCenter website.

Also on the What to Expect site they talk about a pregnancy rash called PUPP.

They suggest things like cool compresses or oatmeal baths.

You will want to discuss your rash with your doctor who can tell you which remedies are safe for you.

Thank you for your question.
