Hello,

Please see my last comment.  Everything you describe sounds classic for cholestasis of pregnancy.  The itching can be unbearable and just so you know, Ursodiol is the same as Actigall.  

Also, it may be helpful for you to go with your daughter to her next ob appointment to have your questions by her primary obstetrician.

Best regards,

Dr. Downing
