Itchy skin/ sensitivity to fabrics


Me entire body has been itchy for months. Lately it's gotten so bad that I can't wear certain fabrics. Elastic drives me absolutely crazy which means that i have zero bras i can wear right now. I can't tolerate anything stretchy really. I've had the bloodwork done to see if i have cholestasis, that was negative. Idk if this is caused by fsbrics or if the fabric on my already super sensitive skin just make the itchiness worse. My face and hands itch too and they does not come into contact with fabric. Has this happened to anyone else and what can i do about it? I am 33 weeks right now. I'm losing my mind and sometimes i have to sit competely naked to get some relief altho i will still be itchy.

Have you tried switching detergent or fabric conditioner? Not sure if you have the same issue I had, but until I switched to a less irritating detergent I used to get itchy rashes on my arms.

I'm waiting for blood test results to come back to determine if I have Obstetric Cholestasis.

So definitely get checked out for OC, but I know that with my first if I wore tight clothes and was active at all, like a walk, I got really itchy, and with my 2nd it was winter when she was born and just the dry skin made me itch. So try looser clothes, a moisturizer, and maybe an anti-itch moisturizer if your dr oks that?

Did you get your results back yet? OC was the first thing that came to mind when I opened this thread. I had it in my 2nd pregnancy and it was awful!
