cholestasis 20wks

So I have a confirmed case of Cholestasis at only 20wks. The itching and burning skin has been going on for weeks now, we've tried everything from Benedryl to steroids... Once I stopped to steroids the symptoms returned and were worse! I'm one big rash!
My OB is sending me to a high risk clinic to be eval by a specialist.
Has anyone else dealt w this? Please ANY insight!!

I had it and I'm sorry to say that no medication will make it better. The steroids also made it worse for me. You'll most likely continue your pregnancy in the normal fashion but they might want to induce once baby is term.
