Linea Nigra : Introduction , Risk , Sign and Symptoms , Treatment


Linea nigra may be a 
dark vertical line that appears on the belly during pregnancy. It can extend from the highest of the belly to the pubic area, running through the middle of the belly button, or the road are often shorter. Increased hormones present during pregnancy stimulate increased pigment production, causing this area to darken. After the baby is born, the road of linea nigra typically fades. Depending on your complexion, this might take up to a year after pregnancy.


Who's at risk?

Linea nigra tends to seem 
a while within the trimester of pregnancy. It is more prominent in women of color. It is also present on women with fair skin, though it's not as noticeable.


Signs and Symptoms

The line of linea nigra is darker than the encompassing 
skin and approximately a centimeter in breadth. It is often quite dark or fairly light in color.


Self-Care Guidelines

No treatment is needed. The line should slowly fade after the baby is born. However, sun exposure can cause it to become darker or take longer to travel 
away, so use a sunblock (at least SPF 15) or keep your belly covered.


When to Seek Medical Care

No medical aid 
is required to treat linea nigra. Continue to take your prenatal vitamins and otherwise follow routine prenatal care guidelines.


Treatments Your Physician May Prescribe

Your doctor will continue routine prenatal care.
