Prescribed Duphaston to stop pre-term labor, skin rashes, itching. Any medications?

Hi, my wife is 30 weeks pregnant and she had contractions on her 27-28th weeks. She was admitted to the hospital and was given bricanyl and duphaston . Her doctor prescribe and instructed her to take duphaston 10mg and bricanyl tablets 4x a day until 2nd week of september. She was doing a little okay at first but last 28-Aug, skin rashes started to appear and she is now complaining of itchiness. Is there a treatment on the skin rash and itchiness? As mush as possible, we don t want to stop the duphaston and bricanyl since this is part of controlling the pre-term labor, but if its necessary to do so, we will not hesitate to stop.

Thanks for writing to us.
The itchiness your wife is having is not likely to be related to duphaston or Bricanyl which she has been given to stop preterm labor.
It is likely to be related to cholestasis of pregnancy and can be relieved by using calamine lotion locally.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
