My Wife Is Itching Like Mad

tom - April 7

Hello all - i just joined to ask a question if i may.... My wife is due in 10 days with our second child. Our first has just got over Chicken Pox - i don't know if this is relevant - but my wife has of late, around the same time as the Chicken Pox started - been suffering extremley itchy legs , belly and chest. This morning she bled slightly from scratching. She has been to the hospital on advice from a friend for a blood test - we should get the results over the weekend hopefully. I've been googling the symptoms and am confused....Is PUPPS the same as EBS? Anyone have any info in layman's terms as to what both these ailments are? Also - how will either of these effect the very last stages of the pregnancy? Will the baby be affected? Thanks in advance - and good luck to all of you .

i work at a hospital , and i do know that you shouldnt be around anyone with cicken pox if your pregnant, i think you should call her dr.

Thanks Ash...We saw the doctor, the chicken Pox wasn't a problem apparently as my wife had it as a child. Her blood test results were negative for liver problems, so apparently it is just a 'preganancy itch' - :-(......I feel for anyone who gets this itch any earlier in the pregnancy as it seems pretty intense and full on. Thanks again

hi tom,, when i read ur post, liver problems came up to my mind cz i read that they cause a lot of itching and are popular in the last trimester.. glad that ur wife's test came -ve on that.. 10 more days are not that much :) good luck to her and all of us,, let her apply a lotion or something that would probably help with the itching
