Hello and hope you are doing well.
Cholestasis of pregnancy is a condition that occurs in pregnant women during the third trimester. Do you also have yellowish discoloration of your eyes, skin? If yes then it is possible that you have jaundice. In that case a clinical examination and treatment is very important. Untreated jaundice can spread to the fetus and cause severe disease manifestations. Other possible causes of itchy rash are eczema,dermatitis,urticaria etc.Seek medical help.
Best wishes and regards!
