Pregnancy. Pricking sensation over stomach, itchy, slight burning sensation. How can I stop?

Hello, I am 33 weeks on my second pregnancy, and I have woken up with a prickling sensation all over the surface of my distended stomach . It was itchy so I was scratching and that has only made it worse and brought on a slight burning sensation. It is impossible to ignore and I just wanted to know what I can do to stop it, will it go away by itself?

Itching in pregnancy is often caused by elevated liver enzymes. So first get a LFT done.Meanwhile you can apply topical creams like lacto calamine lotion.
