Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hormonal changes in the mother's body during pregnancy can indeed make the mother's skin drier and prone to irritation. This skin irritation often makes the skin feel sore, itchy, hot, or even swollen and peeling. There are many triggers for this skin irritation. If a complaint occurs after washing your hair, it could be the shampoo or conditioner you used that triggered it. However, it is also possible that this irritation is triggered by other causes, for example:
Facial care cream
Excessive UV exposure
Exposure to pollution or other substances
In addition to irritation, it is also possible that the complaints you experience occur due to other factors, such as contact dermatitis, insect bites, burns, atopic dermatitis, and so on.
Does the complaint feel so heavy that it disturbs you in your activities? If not, you can try to reduce your complaint through the following steps:
Use a shampoo that does not contain irritating ingredients
Wash your face regularly using a mild cleansing soap that is tailored to your skin type
Do not peel or rub the facial skin excessively that feels uncomfortable
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight between 9am and 2pm
Use sunscreen when doing activities outside the home
Choose skin care products that are mild and safe to use during pregnancy
Get enough sleep
Drink water and eat more vegetables and fruit
Avoid cigarettes and smoke
If the steps above have not succeeded in correcting the complaints you are experiencing, do not delay to go to a skin and genital specialist doctor directly .. Bring up the condition of you who are pregnant so that the doctor can provide appropriate treatment that does not endanger the health of the fetus in the womb. You.
Hope it helps ..
