Hello and welcome to HCM
Itchiness is common during pregnancy
especially during third trimester.
The itchiness is common on plams ans soles but other parts of body are also involved like lower abdomen.
The cause of this itchiness is high levels of hormones in blood during third trimester.
Most of the times no treatment is required but in some cases where the itchiness is intense and debilitating, the condition is labelled as 'Cholestasis
of pregnancy' and it can cause maternal, fetal and pregnancy associated complications.
So if you are experiencing intese itching especially the palms ans soles without a rash
, you need to consult your obstectitician and take suitable treatment.
Regarding small swellings on the labia majora
, they seem to be some benign skin lesions.
It is difficult to diagnose the condition without examination.
So visit your doctor for the same.
Thank you and take care.
