Hi dear
Welcome to the HCM,
Mild steroidal cream should help along with the antifungal agent. Please change the brand.
She should also be investigated for any sort of hepatitis infection specially hepatitis E.
Itching is the common symptoms in pregnant ladies with hepatitis infection.
Hope the query is answered.
