    I have reached my 7th month in pregnancy and my body has developed massive itching all over. All I do is itch and scratch. I can’t even sleep at night. There is massive pigmentation on the affected area. Will I develop stretch marks? I am worried.

    Yes very dry skin can cause itching leading to stretch marks. I too had it. Try having a bath with coconut oil massage and apply a creamy moisturizer later on. This will reduce the itching. You can also apply a calamine lotion which is very cooling and gives relief.

    Are you living in a very humid area? Sometimes the excess sweat and bacterial growth can cause itching and irritation on the skin. Try sitting in an AC environment. Wear loose cotton clothes.  🙂

    Home remedy try applying lavender oil or body butter which keep the skin smooth.
