Get an Alkaline phosphatase done. It is the blood level which needs to be checked in case of pregnancy itching. In the meantime she can apply calamine lotion to reduce the itching. Dr Sachin Dalal

Itching is due to many reasons.....but major factors are cholestasis in pregnancy new tissue being formed to increase tummy girth to accomodate pregnancy Apart from taking the medicines that you have you can try by - changing iron preparation (tabs) - having bath 2 times a day - using moisturising soap - Use of sandalwood paste or lactocalamine totion can be tried....
