Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on skin during pregnancy

bumps

I have a lump on my leg I have had for quite a while and recent have developed one more on my thigh and one on my hip (all on the same leg). The lump came about 5 years ago and started very small and is growing at a slow rate. It is about the diameter of a pencil eraser right now. It does not hurt but I am concerned now that I have developed 2 more ont he same leg. The 2 developed during my first pregnancy last year.
Hello, It is common to find some itchy rashes in pregnancy but they are specific for pregnancy like pruritic urticarial plaques of pregnancy( PUPP). If you have generalized itchy skin, it can be due to the thyroid condition also. PUPP is characterized by small red bumps and hives, and when severe, the bumps form large patches. This rash usually develops on the abdomen, and spreads to the thighs, buttocks, breasts and arms. Slight itching from PUPPP may cause mild discomfort.
Everyone feels better when they know the reason why. The sight of blood is very unnerving during a pregnancy, and I think they should be more accomadating in figuring out the reasons WHY it happened.
excessive scratching can cause redness, swelling, bumps, broken blood vessels beneath the skin, and eventually broken skin. if you feel the need to itch, try to use a soft cloth in place of your fingers/fingernails. i learned to keep a washrag with me and it worked well to keep me from scratching my skin off (which i did a LOT of before i came up with the rag). hang in there! and let us know how it goes.
Im 12 wks pregnant and just now i realized i have a few bumps clustered on one of my butt cheek... Does anyone have or had this happen during pregnancy? What is it and what should i do?
They could just be skin tags. Very common during pregnancy. They think that their cause by the elevation in hormones... I highly doubt it has anything to do with the yeast infection.
I have an 8 month old son. During my pregnancy my doctor did pap smears and cultures on me every trimester to make sure I didn't have any STDs or anything harmful to me or my child. My first test result I had Chlamydia but my doctor prescribed me something to take care of it. My other results came back normal and I had nothing. I had not been sexually active during my pregnancy and I am not sexually active now and I haven't been since I found out I was pregnant (over a year ago).
One week ago I had some painful swelling and 2 red bumps on my outer vagina. It almost seemed as if there was a pimple forming. The swelling lasted about 2-3 days. During this time, I also developed a sinus infection & was put on antibiotics. I got what seemed to me to be a yeast infection - a mixture of cottage cheese like and white milky discharge. There is not an odor to the dischage. It is quite usual for me to get a yeast infection when I am on antibiotics.
I suddenly have developed tiny bumps on my upper lip. A few months ago this happened in just one little patch but it went away, and I can't remember if I did anything. But just a few days ago they appeared again on both sides of my upper lip. Then, the next day they had spread and now go all the way along the ridge of my upper lip. They aren't particularly noticeable except they change the shape of my lip, making it look smaller than it was in the places where they are on the very edge.
for the past few days my breast have been a little tender and today i noticed tiny white bumps on both nipples. they come and go. im on cd 29 and have 32-39day cycles. has anyone know what this might be from? thanks!
If you have gained a lot of weight during your pregnancy then this is a possibility. Prurigo of pregnancy is due to abnormal hormone levels, will disappear on delivery and reappear on subsequent pregnancy. These conditions are harmless both for mother and baby. Steroid creams & ointments, moisturizing creams, aloe vera lotions, wet soaks, calamine lotions are usually enough to control both.
Some time during my last pregnancy I my husband noticed a bunch of dark colored spots on both sides of my labia I have counted 14 on one side and 9 on the other. Since then I have noticed that many of them are raised and hard. These range in size from a pin point to the size of an eraser. The larger ones are the ones that are raised and hard. I do not have any itching or discharge. I only get yeast infections if I take antibiotics. Luckily.
I guess this is normal during or after pregnancy. One article said that if you were torn during childbirth and weren't sutured up properly, that skin tags can be the result. I would have to say to go get a second opinion. Don't question your marriage because of the uncertainty of a doctor. Believe me, I have had quite the experience in matters of broken trust due to a gyn problem.
I'm a lactation consultant and have nursed--sounds like what most of your are experiencing is just the drying of leaked colostrum on your nipples. As your breasts change and prep to make milk, you develop colostrum, or a thick pre-milk that's usually yellow-orage in color. When a little leaks out at night or otherwise, it dries pretty quickly.
I have read that if you are one to get an occasional break out before af your chances of break outs during pregnancy are higher... Great!! Mine aren't real noticeable either, just little bumps on my forehead and temple. It's funny cause when I would get a break out before af it's never been on my forehead, usually my chin or beside my nose!
Ok, but do bumps like that normally occur during a yeast infection?
Besides for the blister style bumps, I have traditional dry skin eczema on my thighs and back of arms. These are bumps and itchy with major dry patches but without liquid.That problem Eucerin or any fragrance-free, potent, extreme dry skin or itch relief lotion helps. You do have to be diligent in applying often and it helps to apply RIGHT out of the shower so that your body does not dry out and absorbs the moisture while your pores are still open.
I'm also 18 and have the same thing i have no idea what it is, its like little tiny bumps on both sides on the labia minotra that is the same color as the rest of my skin and they don't hurt the skin feels kinda of ruff when you touch it. I don't know what it is or how i got it.... maybe its skin irratation or skin tags???
I found a blister to be a strange concept on sucha dry foot I traditionally have to lotion frequently. As the days went on tiny bumps and itches perplexed around this scabbed blister on the side of my foot. I began to diligently clean it with peroxide. At first I contemplating the theory of it being a fungus like athletes foot, especially since Id been using communial matts at yoga... however it didnt seem feesable on sucha dry foot.
I've never really considered the fact that the two might be linked. Thank you for this question it really makes a girl think. I've always been more prone to stress and it turns out my family (ALL of the women) lack Vit B.. which is often used to deal with stress. I always seem to get stressed out. .which causes more breakouts! I never had out of control breakouts, but I did and still do from time to time break out. My husband got me a engagement ring and it is silver.
I just recently had one of these pimple like bumps appear on my vagina at the same time that I tore the skin at the bottom of my vagina. I think it's some sort of infection. NOT HERPES. I was told by a doctor that looked at it that it was just from shaving...razor bumps I suppose. Not sure if this will help anyone but with a qtip i dabbed hydrogen peroxide on the bumps only. Also Tucks medicated wipes/pads may help a little too...or neosporin or zinc oxide cream/ointment.
Ok so I've been really ichy all over, and I thought it was just my skin stretching. But now I'm iching almost everywhere and I have small red bumps on my skin. Not a lot, and not really notable. They are there tho. Does anyone know what this could be?

i started getting a rash on my hip before i found out i was preggo....very itchy!!!!!! i googled rash during pregnancy after i found out i was preggo and i found that some women show slight signs of eczema/psoriasis during pregnancy but most of the time it goes away! i just kept it clean with mild soap and use cocoa butter to relieve the itching! i still have a small area and i am a lil over 13 weeks...but luckily it doesn't itch anymore and it has almost cleared up!
I do have constant thoughts of bugs crawling on my skin. The thoughts get worse and worse. First it was bugs excreting frm my skin now the bugs are more violent and are now ripping my skin open and eating my skin. Like I stated before I dont ever see anything. It's just when my mind is idle I get thoughts and images in my head of this happening. I am at my wits end. It is like i am having nightmares while I am awake.
It is usually worse during the winter months or other times of low humidity when skin dries out, and may worsen during pregnancy or after childbirth. Treatment of keratosis pilaris is not necessary, and unfortunately often has disappointing results. With persistence, most people can get very satisfactory improvement. Initial treatment should be intensive moisturizing. Try a cream such as Acid mantle, Vaseline or Complex 15 after bathing, and re-apply the cream again several times daily.
Generally during pregnancy you are advised against using ANY products for it as many contain retinol, salicylic (sp)acid, or elevated amounts of vitamin A. I feel your pain, I rarely ever break out except while I am pregnant. I simply wash my face requently with warm water and a washcloth, air dry, and let it be. I never wear foundation anyway, but I know if I were to start now it would just make matters worse ; ) Talk with your doctor and see what they recommend.
Hello, It is advisable not to use any antifungals during pregnancy without any confirmation of diagnosis as none of the drugs are considered safe during pregnancy. I would suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Hope it helps. Take care and regards.
