Hormonal changes that occur in the body also have an impact on physical changes, one of which is uneven skin color, plus the appearance of stretch marks in several places. What are the causes and effects?
Apparently, not only hormones that cause changes in skin color in pregnant women but also changes in the immune system. The possibility of whether you will have problems with the skin during pregnancy can be seen based on family history. If your sister or mother has problems with the skin, chances are you will experience the same thing when you are pregnant.
If you already had skin problems before you conceived, the condition could be worse or even better during pregnancy. But you don’t need to worry because it’s completely harmless. Skin problems to watch out for are when the discoloration is accompanied by other complaints, such as pain or redness. If it happens, you should immediately see a pediatrician or midwife find out the cause and treatment.
Except for stretch marks, almost all skin discoloration that occurs during pregnancy will disappear a few months after you give birth. So, you don’t have to worry about seeing some areas of your body’s skin change, because everything will return to normal with regular skin care.
