What Is The Solution Itchy Stomach In Pregnancy At 37 Weeks?

Hello Mrs. Atiek! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Stretch marks are skin changes that often occur in pregnant women, especially in the last trimester. Stetch marks occur because of stretches on the skin. To reduce itching due to stretch marks, you can try using a moisturizer on the area that has stretch marks. Moisturizers can maintain skin elasticity during hormonal changes and skin stretch due to an enlarged abdomen. Consumption of enough water, at least 10 glasses per day, can also help alleviate your complaints. Mothers also should not use water that is too hot, hot when bathing, warm water is still allowed. Avoid rubbing or scratching your skin because it can actually make it itchier and sores can occur on the skin. You can also apply oil or cream for stretch marks that you can get freely at the pharmacy. The drug that you mentioned is a lotion containing calamine, zinc oxyde, and diphenhydramine. This drug is generally safe to use for pregnant women to reduce the itching that you feel. In this last trimester, do not forget to control at least 1 time to the obstetrician. It is important for you to have an ultrasound examined by an obstetrician to determine whether your pregnancy is normal and whether you can deliver normally through the vagina or must be accompanied by certain actions.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
