Hello Great, thank you for visiting HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of peeling skin and feeling itchy are not a sign of pregnancy. There are several reasons that cause the above complaints, including:
Neurodermatitis. It is a skin disease characterized by patches of skin on more than one scale that feel itchy, have a rough or scaly texture, and look darker or redder than skin that is not sore. Trigger factors for neurodermatitis such as emotional disturbances, anxiety, or friction can cause skin irritation. Psoriasis. It is a skin disease characterized by itching, red rash, peeling, dry, and thickened skin. Psoriasis can affect the whole body, but is usually most common on the scalp, lower back, elbows. The cause is not known for certain, but it is suspected that it is due to an immune disorder of Irritant Contact Dermatitis. Is a skin disease that occurs due to irritation of certain ingredients, such as soap, perfume, lotion, etc. Symptoms of irritant contact dermatitis are itching, stinging, sometimes heat on the peeling skin. Meanwhile, the complaints that were suspected to be pregnancy were the menstrual cycle stopped, the breasts felt enlarged and the nipples blackened, nausea and vomiting, frequent urination. And to determine a definite sign of pregnancy is through Ultrasonography (USG) visible fetus, fetal heart rate. For simple tests, you can use the test pack.
To reduce complaints of itching and peeling skin that is felt, there are several things you can do:
Do not scratch the part where the skin is itchy and peel off the part that is peeling off to prevent secondary infection. Keep your body clean and healthy. Apply salicylic powder if you feel itchy. Skin and Sex for direct examination. The doctor may dig deeper into your complaint and if necessary, carry out additional tests such as skin scraping tests, allergy tests, blood tests, etc.
