Cholestasis : Cholestasis typically causes total body itching. It most often occurs in the 3rd trimester. There are many other common causes of vaginal itching. Schedule a visit with your Obgyn for an exam and testing.

Agree with Dr.L: For the sake of your and your baby's health you should be under the care of a doctor, preferably an obstetrician. The doctor would be better able to address your health issues by examining you. Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
