Objectives: To study frequency and pattern of physiological skin changes and skin disease effected by pregnancy and factors affecting them.
Methods: A total of 300 pregnant women were randomly selected from outpatient antenatal clinic and antenatal ward in ASRAM, Eluru appropriate investigations were done to confirm the diagnosis if required.
Results: Majority of the pregnant women were multipara, belonging to age group 21-25 years and most changes were observed in the third trimester of pregnancy. Pigmentation was the commonest physiological change. Striae were more common in multigravida, more on abdomen but the onset of striae was early on breast. Among specific dermatoses, atopic eruption of pregnancy was observed to be the most common. Infections and infestations constituted a major part of affected dermatoses.
Conclusions: In this study various pregnancy dermatoses were studied. It is imperative to recognize these changes to differentiate benign conditions from those associated with potential fetal and maternal risks and to know when the treatment should be initiated.
