I was in the doctors office for it and also the hospital for heart problems and they said they don't know what it is. The nurse said it could be a heat rash, I live in Michigan how in the world could I have a heat rash at this time of year? Also, it's getting worse as the days go by it's been a week since I've seen a doctor and they said it would go away when I called yesterday. I'm kind of worried, since I'm so miserable I can't handle it anymore..

For a few years now, I've been getting a red blotchy chest/neck rash in circumstances where I - am drinking alcohol, anxious, nervous, excited, upset - really feeling just about any emotion. It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement.

It sometimes affects the armpits, chest and in the groin area. Stress, fatigue (pregnancy / lactation in your case), weather extremes, oily skin and infrequent shampooing or skin cleaning & severe medical illnesses make it worse. People with seborrhoeic dermatitis produce too much sebum (the natural skin oil). Later, pityrosporum yeast, grows excessively in the sebum, sometime along with bacteria, making the dermatitis more persistent.
There also testing my liver as apparently even though I've developed the allergy they said part of the rash can be a liver infection common in pregnancy and I'll find out the results Mon.

I gave birth to our first child in October 2009, and have been breastfeeding our child ever since. In December of that year, I developed a very itchy rash on my stomach, upper back, and chest. The itch was insatiable, and drove me mad. My doctor said it looked like an allergic reaction, and suggested some cream for dry skin.

At my 30th week of pregnancy last November I broke out in horrific rash, and was told I had PUPPP, which is a pregnancy rash mainly consisting of ITCHY rash. I was sent to a dermo who diagnosed it and ended up steroidal creams,etc. Was told this would go away after I had my son. Well my son is 7 months old and while the itching is not as intense I still itch everyday and at times have what looks like hives with mesquito bite type marks and sometimes its the pimple looking rash.

Pemphigoid Gestationis Or Herpes Gestationis This rash has nothing to do with the herpes virus. It occurs in 1 in every 10,000 to 50,000 pregnancies. The rash starts out near the belly button and spreads to the abdomen and extremities. It is recognized by the small, raised hives that quickly morph into blisters. The rash is linked to a greater risk of early delivery and fetal growth problems.
Does anyone have advise and/or has anyone got a PUPP RASH so early in pregnancy? And if so, what helped with the itchiness and discomfort of it.
Hello, From the symptoms it can be prurtic urticarial plaques of pregnancy or prurigo of pregnancy. prurigo of pregnancy can involve any body part and can appear in pregnancy. No treatment is effective and medicines are to be taken with caution because of their adverse effects on the fetus. Avoiding hot water baths and applying plenty of good moisturizers and calamine lotion helps in relieving itching. Gentle moisturizers should be applied immediately after taking baths.
blood testing/ urine testing/ pap smear / chest-x-ray,even pregnancy testing showed great results. However, till this day, I have rash/hives (not as bad as before where I couldn't breath) all over me.

I took him back to the doctor with no answers, and the nurse saying to set up an appointment, I couldn't call until this morning since the appointment desk was closed for the day, and now he has an appointment Friday. Today his rash is worse all over where it previously was, and has spread to his arms and legs...

I'll be making the allergist appointment because I do believe this is an allergy due to changes in hormones from pregnancy. The dermatologist told me that pregnancy/birth does such a number on your body that you can develop allergies that you never had before. Anyway, I have taken about every prescription that everyone has discussed as well as over the counter stuff too. At one point, one doctor even prescribed scabies medicine thinking that might be it!
Symmetrical rashes of the kind you describe are often either allergic or viral in nature. The fact that your rash is localized (not all over the body) makes allergy quite unlikely, as does your reproductive doctor's unfamiliarity with it. (Generally, specialists get to know the likely side-effects of their particualr corner of medicine quite well, because they get calls about them.
and worsened in severity. I had a rash on my chest since week three. It is still there and no better or worse. All of this other raised skin, pimply, red measly, blistery looking stuff has just come and stayed in the past three weeks. There wasn't a caution about taking the triamcinolone? I keep seeing warnings about taking steroids while on the interferon. And msemeet, a poster on here who suffered from a bad rash, also took steroids and had somei issues.
