Very itchy..down there..what is this??? adult content

im assuming this is related to pregnancy because ive never had this problem and now that im 13 weeks pregnant, ive been having this crazy insane itch problem in the pubic hair area..not on the actual vaginal area..just the "top" like under your belly button where the pubic hair starts and down to the middle of that patch of hair...its all the time, its not from shaving..it gets so bad where i feel like itching until the skin comes off..i never had this problem before, until about maybe 2 weeks ago..i dont have any std's or sti's..anyone know what this is?? could it just be from hormones? i have an appointment friday, im going to bring it up to my doctor just wanted to ask to see if anyone else has experienced this..

  • not sure.. but benedryl creme / hydrocortozone will help with the itching . ( topical) I think you said only the top outside and not the inter.

  • Is there any kind of rash? It could still be a yeast infection even though it's on the outside. General itching comes with pregnancy sometimes too. Just ask your doctor to find out for sure.
