Itchy feet?!

I’m 32 weeks pregnant and my feet and toes have small red, itchy bumps on them. Almost like a heat rash. Has anyone else had or got this? Is there anything I can do to ease the itching!?

I would suggest calling the midwife. It is not a very good thing to have itchy fee

May just be a pregnancy symptom but defo contact midwife as it could be a sign of preeclampsia

Thank you!

Call the doc… could be a thing with the liver. They will run a blood test to check.

Do you have cholestasis?!

I agree that you need to get checked out as there could be something dangerous underlying but I just wanted to also reassure you that skin issues are really common in pregnancy also. I had itchy feet with my first and after getting checked it was about simply moisturising better and they prescribed me a very mild steroid cream to use if it was really bad. I remember it being terrible at night and me wanting to scratch my skin off! But all was fine. No cholestatsis or liver issues. I am pregnant again and had it briefly this time too at about 20 weeks. Hope it’s nothing serious for you.

Definitely reach out to your doctor/midwife while trying the extra moisturizer. I was getting extra itchy a few weeks ago and I started showering twice a day and moisturizing twice a day and it helped me. But the doctor had to make sure I didn’t have cholestasis.

Same as others please call the midwife, I had itching and I had to have blood tests etc they sent them straight to the hospital as you can have Cholestasis xx

Thank you all!! Having a blood test next week just to be sure. 🤞🏼
