Itchy feet: Skin changes, rashes and symptoms like itchy feet are common in pregnancy especially in the first two trimesters. Topical emollients and mid potency steroids are the mainstay of treatment.

Can be dry skin: Pruritus or itchy skin can be a normal part of pregnancy. A small percentage of women suffer from this condition. But if the itching is very severe then you should consult your doctor to make sure it is not an underlying issue which may affect your baby.
