SANCHEZ-MENDEZ, J. I.  y  LOPEZ-RODRIGUEZ, M. J.. Pruritus during pregnancy: a practical approach. Medifam [online]. 2001, vol.11, n.4, pp.19-33. ISSN 1131-5768.

Pruritus, a frequent symptom during pregnancy, can be present in a large number of diseases. If we select those characteristic of the pregnancy, we can difference two groups. The first one, without typical skin lesions, includes the intrahepatic cholestasis and its minor form, the gestational pruritus. The other one, wider and eminently dermatological, is characterized by the appearance of diverse lesions in the skin. The initial symptomatic treatment is common for all the processes, and it consists on the administration of topical antipruritus substances.In this paper we approach this symptom from an eminently practical perspective that allows, in a simple way, the differential diagnosis, and the initial treatment.

Palabras clave : Pruritus; Intrahepatic cholestasis; Herpes gestationis; Antipruritus substances.
