Hello. Welcome to HCM.
Itching in late part of pregnancy
is due to increasing pressure of gravid uterus
on biliary system, leading to transient cholestasis
. Bile salt deposition leads to itching. It may be unnerving to hear, that for most people, nothing helps, only after 36th week, there might be relief when uterus descends.
However, a few drops of savlon
like antiseptic might be helpful. Avoid skiin dryness otherwise, by using soothening moisturisers.
ALP elevates in pregnancy because of cholestasis and also because PLACENTA is a SOURCE OF PRODUCTION OF ALP, unlike non-pregnant persons.
So, dont worry. Enjoy this period.
