More than halfway through her pregnancy, Christina DePino began to notice an itch.
Thinking it was just normal pregnancy itching, the 28-year-old Detroit area woman ignored it. But as weeks went by, inching closer and closer to her due date, DePino says the itch started to become more “intense.”“The itching that started out on my arms and legs, began to become more pronounced on the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet,”
But “It was worse at night. The itching would be so intense that I would wake up and not be able to go back to sleep.”
