itchy skin

I'm 25+5 and my skin is itchy all over. I've read it van be normal but I've also read it can be ICP I guess its a liver condition and it usually starts around the 25th week. I wouldn't be paranoid but read it can cause still birth. Should I assume I the small percentage that can all of a sudden develop this ? I've had two normal pregnancies before no complications and this is my third.   Help

I had the same problem before in this current pregnancy, it was horrible, the itch just wouldnt stop, i went to the e.r and they told me i was fine but they told me to buy hydrocortisone cream and it went away :)

I have the same problem I'm 29 weeks and doctor checked my liver, everything is normal. He said its called pupps, its merely a rash women get when pregnant and will go away after you have the baby. Use hydrocortisone cream and maybe your doctor can prescribe you medication like mine did. Goodluck, its miserable I know!

I was wondering the same thing its not super itchy and I don't have a rash or anything but I get itchy for no reason and in random spots its not normal for me so it bothers me and I also worry of the liver condition but I mentioned it to my ob and she didn't seem concerned at all so idk I'm 27w5d don't really know what to do or think
