Awareness of pregnancy-related skin changes can facilitate improved care of women during pregnancy by identifying those skin changes that require further evaluation. Women experience significant endocrine and metabolic changes during pregnancy that can cause both physiologic and pathologic alterations in the skin, nails, and hair. This review discusses the physiologic changes and pruritic dermatoses that are specifically associated with pregnancy. The effect of pregnancy on preexisting skin diseases and safe treatment options for usage during pregnancy will be provided.
