Im 37 weeks pregnant and my skin is all itchy and sometimes it looks like a sunburn,and when I take a bath then my skin starts burning,and itches moreAnswer Question
This sounds like dermatitis to me. Pregnant skin is really sensitive and should be treated gently. If you are relaxing in a bathtub make sure the water is not too hot and that you keep it under 20 minutes. Aveeno makes an oatmeal bath that can provide some relief and DO NOT use anything with any fragrance in it. Also, makes sure you seal in moisture with an unscented lotion (again, I like aveeno) The oatmeal really helps. If you stop using fragranced products and are still having difficulties, Call your Doc.
