Itching In Pregnancy- Big Problem?

I will be 19 weeks tomorrow, and lastnight I started with the most uncomfortable and annoying itching on my bump. Today I woke up, and I know have it in the crease of my arms too.

Im currently overseas in Turkey, but have been here 2 weeks already and lastnight was the first time Ive experinced this. My arms and belly are bright red.

Could it just be from the heat, or might it be pregnancy related? Im going mad with it!

You need to get checked for OC but yours sound smore like what I had in my first pregnancy which was PUPP

It was a nightmare and I ended up having to take antihystamines. I didn't get it until the last few weeks though. Hopefully yours is just heat related but I do remember the more I scratched the more it spread.
