What could be the reasons for having itching and white areas in arm on 35th week of pregnancy?
i am pregnant, 35 weeks, my underarm gets dark and that's normal as far as i know but under my left arm there are some white areas, I thought that it needs cleaning but when I cleaned I did get away and it is lil bit painful but not strong pain, it is like itching. plz help Thanks
Hello, Welcome to health care magic. A few causes for white patches in the arm includes a fungal infection called pityriasis versicolor, post inflammatory hypopigmentation and early vitiligo. The patches may not be related to pregnancy unless if they had started as itchy red rashes which have now become white( post inflammatory hypopigmentation) .Please see a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis and for appropriate treatment. Take care.
