Hey guys another question for you! Anyone else experienced itchy skin in pregnancy? Im 18 weeks and its driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes! You totally describe me as well. Although I'm only itchy on my stomach and extremely itchy on my boobs, it drives me nuts when the itches attack me in public..ugh so stressful! What helps me is the Cocoa Butter cream I got at wal-mart, you should try it! It relieves the itches a little bit and it helps with preventing stretch marks caused by them. Although I'm already full of the stretch marks I still use it and it helps me most of the time!
we lose sleep, and emotionally it is getting to us! Our symptoms include itchy skin all day usually worsens at night, where ever we itch a rash will appear, we all have scratched so bad had made scabs. Husband has some bumps alittle bigger then me and my daughter but for the most part are the same!! PLEASE HELP US!!!!!
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.
I recently had try skin on my finger which turned itchy and became broken skin. At first I thought it was beause I had been itching it but I kept it clean and used e45 cream regularily. After about 2 weeks I discovered tiny little rough skin spots which were sometimes itchy, through touches my feet and hands it has spread. I've been told its dermatitis or maybe something else. The spots are not sore just itchy and hardely noticable. Seems similiar to what happened to you..
i used to have a rash in the crevice on both sides of my nostrils and in my groin area when i was younger but i havent had a problem with that for a long time, but i do still have a problem with moderately itchy bumps that form on my scalp, usually in the very back of the scalp and sometimes they have a pus and sometimes they dont. those come and go. sorry for the nauseating description but any suggestions with that would also be helpful. thanks!!!
At the exact same time, my scalp broke out in a rash, became itchy and flaky, my eyes got what seemed to be eczema around them (swelling, itching cracking, bumps, flaking around the red inflamed areas), and I got itchy patches on my skin. My lips also dried out and swelled up. My dermatologist prescribed steroids and the rash went down, but the itchy scalp and flaking and hair loss are still going on - three weeks later.
My sister had colistatsis of the liver during her pregnancy and was VERY itchy- but that also was with a rash and was ALL OVER her body!
It works for about 2-3 hours, then I am back itching. I am also getting little red bumps on my stomach, is this normal? Also, my son is located on the bottom (that's where I am itching the most), will the srcatching harm him in anyway?
Occasionally I also experience the stinging near the bottom of the opening, more on the perinneum area, but no bumps there. I have been tested for the obvious herpes, but to no avail. I have had blood work and swabbing done. My doctor feels it is lichen sclerosus, because she sees what she called "cigarette paper" skin, meaning it is very thin in that area. I have requested a biopsy, which is pending, because I want to be sure.
Hey everyone! I am 5 weeks pregnant and have this extremely itchy rash on my body, particularly my arms, chest and trunk. It looks like tiny red bumps and appears to be more severe when I scratch (but it's so hard not to!!!). I've read about pregnancy rashes, but they usually occur much later in the pregnancy. Does anyone know what could be going on and is this normal??
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.
You have been working in the garden so the little bumps on your skin may be caused due to insect bites. The red bump is caused due to the toxins injected into the body by the insect like fleas, mites, mosquitoes; etc.The next cause is allergic reaction. The allergic reaction can be due to any plant, medication, eatables, etc. If the bumps and itchiness appear to spread, then it is best to seek medical attention.
My mom has been getting the same itchy bumps on her arms for almost a year now. Nothing seemed to work until I suggested she start taking an Antihistamine. This seems to help alot. She has no history of allergies, bug bites or what have you, but she does get cold sores and suffered a severe outbreak on her entire face due to contracting bacterial menangitis where her immune system was so impaired, the herpes ran rampant.
A good friend of mine got a rash when she was pregnant with her daughter.. I can't remember what it's called, but it comes during pregnancy and the only way to get rid of it is to deliver the baby. She said it itched ALL over and she had like a red splotchy rash all over her body. She couldn't stop itching for anything. If this sounds like what you have I would ask your doctor if you could possibly have it.
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'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 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!
My midwife tooks some bloods to check for any problems showing with my liver but they came back fine and it was just a case of pregnancy changing my skin. I mainly had it on my bump and it drove me crazy. I was prescribed E45 itch relief which was a god send. I am in the UK tho so not sure if its available everywhere. I also put a few drops of baby oil into my bath.
HELLO I HAVE BEEN EXPEIRENCING THIS PROBLEM TOO, I'm not sure what I have, its itchy as HELL, there are a few bumps on my labia, it really stings when I pee, and it feels swollen too.. :( I don't know what 2do, Im in so much pain I can't even sleep!! Its affecting me alot especially since I have work too.. its so un-comfortable :'( I feel like crying. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT THIS IS!!!!!!
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.
I at first thought this was a heat rash due to sitting on the couch constantly while on leave. *i have VERY sensitive skin and am use to having bumps develop or eczema flare ups if something irritates my skin* Well, the once harmless rash jumped to my face and neck last night while out with my husband. I attributed this to hives because i was beyond stressed out about who knows what... Up until 4 weeks post pardom I was healing quite well and having no problems. This just came out of nowhere..
There are so many questions that i would like answered like why only certain areas of the arm are itchy, why is it seasonal, and so on and so on. I was prescribed some sort of sleeping pill by my regular doctor but it did nothing but make me groggy so i stopped taking them because i felt so awful in the morning. I think that it def is Brachioradial pruritis it just seems to make sense.
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.
Hi, last week my husband opened up a box of calamarie (squid) and i started to get red itchy bumps on my arms. We both thought it was just an allergic reaction, which is weird because I have never been allergic to anything in my life. I am 32 wks pregnant now and the red, itchy, burning bumps is all over my legs, thighs, behind, and arms. This **** is everywhere. I've tried maximum srtength hydrocortisone cream and it did nothing.
The last two periods though have been really rough and I just clued in that on the 2nd when I got my last one I got cough, fever, sore muscles and now on the 28th I have come down with the same thing. I am sitting here thinking that I might have swine flu but realized I felt this same way at the beginning of the month. This however is interfering with my work because I can't go in feeling the way I do.
Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in front...no numbness or anything on the back of my leg.
Becasue I had developed some bumps on my legs that were very itchy. Since then though, I feel like things are crawling on me and I am very afraid that it could be parasites. I have been doing some research for the past few days and there are many different parasites that could affect us. I know it's very disturbing to consider this as an option, but according to some of the web-sites I've vistited (including WebMD) it is very common.
Hi, I had that same type of itching in my past pregnancy minus the bumps and my Dr said that it was because of the stretching of the skin and also from it being dry. The only thing that said I could do was keep it moisturized and believe me, everything I tried didn't help either. And if you are scratching, it will only make it worse. So, what I bought this time and I haven't started itching (knock on wood) is Palmers products and I use it faithfully. Also, try not to use alot of harsh soap (i.
