M. Tampa, C. Matei, A. Dumitru, I. Sarbu, T. Hangan, S. R. Georgescu

Abstract: Skin conditions during pregnancy could lead to many adverse and outcome effects on fetus. In this respect, the choice regarding the various topical and systemic treatments that could be used in preganancy should be based on each patient skin condition (e.g. topical corticoids which are currently used in itching). Furthermore, hormonal behavior during pregnancy could have a higher impact involving striae gravidarum, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy and pemphigoid gestationis. There are also many other skin conditions that could lead to itching, such as dermatitis, psoriasis or fungal infections. Most of these conditions could be spontaneously resolved postpartum, but specific treatments may be required during pregnancy. For skin pregnancy conditions, an interdisciplinary management by dermatologists, hepatologists, gynecologist and pediatricians should be recommended.

Keywords: skin condition, pregnancy, hormone, gravidarum, cholestasis, pemphigoid.
