Rash legs pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Rash legs pregnancy


I washed and hurry up andd got out and my ankle is really bad swollen and have a horrible rash. could this be pregnancy related?
Uuuuuugh!! I just wanna scream and cry!! LOL I've had this rash that started Saturday. It started around my collarbone. Now it's gone down to my chest and is creeping onto my belly!! It is sooo itchy. I put no name aveeno on it last night and it BURNED!! The best way to describe it is like a heat rash because it's prickly like that! Can't catch a break I tell ya! No idea what it's from. I've had allergy testing in the past and am not allergic to common allergens.
' 'It's those pregnancy hormones at work yet again, causing your pores to secrete excess oil, making you vulnerable to heat rash, and visiting discolorations on your face, legs, palms, and soles. They're even responsible for a particularly unpleasant kind of skin eruption known as PUPPP (pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy), or lesions in your stretch marks. Skin tags, or small, raised growths on the skin, are common during pregnancy, too, particularly under your arms.
There asre never any visible signs of rash or hives. I had bloodwork done, which proved to be negative. I don't use any soaps with dyes or fragrance, I take short, cool showers and lotion right after, I don't have any allergies that I am aware of. the itching seems to happen after a shower and at night/in the morning ( I think because of temperature changes in my skin?). I don't know if I just have hypersensitive skin or what? it is odd that it would just come on out of the blue.
Hi, How are you? Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy or PUPPP, is the most common rash in pregnant women. It normally occurs in first pregnancies during the third trimester (around 35 weeks). The cause is unknown. But the rash of PUPPP almost always begins in the stretch marks of the abdomen. Over the next several days, it can spread over the thighs, buttocks, breasts, and arms.Fortunately, the condition is harmless to mother and baby.
At the 7th month of my last pregnancy, I was 40 years old, now 43, I began having leg itching after the shower, pool. There is no rash or allergies. It has gotten worse, now spreading to my arms. I am in perfect health and healthy. I am starting to be a little itchy all day now. Shaving my legs creates a terrible itcy leg that will last for several days on and off. I will not shave anymore too much itchy pain. My legs may be itcy at night a little, but gone after sleep.
i dont care if its gone i just want to not itch as bad....my OB said it looked like the PUPP rash but she said its too early in pregnancy to have that rash but i am one of those people that anything can happen!!! i hope you get your rash under control but aveno is a great product for itchy skin.
It got so bad, that during the nights I was awake for hours just scratching away at my legs, stomach, and arms. After my baby was born, the rash on my stomach went away and the icthing on my arms did too. It's now been 4 months since my baby was born and the itch on my legs still continues. I tried all sorts of creams and ointments but nothing seems to work. It especially itches more after I get out of the shower. I put lotion on (thinking that my legs might be dry), but nothing works.
When my legs itch it is usually my lower legs, but my upper legs will itch too. There is never any sign of a rash or any kind of irritation on my skin - it just itches like crazy. Sometimes it feels more like a "pins and needles" feeling, like when your hand or foot falls asleep. It almost feels like every little hair on my legs are poking me.
For as long as I can remember I have had these red dots on my legs. More so on my calfs than my thigh. It's the holes where the hair grows from. They are not risen and they don't itch. It doens't really look like a rash either. They are just really red. I have tried every kind of razor and shaving cream known to man and nothing helps.I have tried shaving really lightly and still nothing.
Hello, Did the itchy rash start in her pregnancy as it can then be a pregnancy associated rash. The other possibilities are of hives or erythema multiforme. Take some Benadryl and apply some calamine lotion on the skin. I would also suggest a dermatologist’s evaluation and biopsy of the lesion to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
I have had a battery of bloodwork done to no avail. my dermatologist says its atopic dermatitis. I am not buying it. I never had this b4 until about 6 months ago when I was in the latter stages of my pregnancy and now I am 3 months post pregnancy and still have it. I am perfectly healthy and do not have dry skin. She gave me steroidal cream to try but it doesn't work. This is an odd affliction and I hope we can all work together to find out the cause and find a cure.
I put spf 30 on my tummy but it was last years sunblock and it was banana boat. I put spf 8 Hawaiian tropic on my legs, arms, n chest. Sun morning i had a lil rash on my stomach but no where else. So do u think it's the sunblock? Ormaybe the sun? I still have it but not as pink or bumpy as it was.
I also have had tinea versicolor, but use a topical steroid and it stays cleared up. i didn't get this until about 6 months into to my previous pregnancy. I am 4 months out and still have alot of problems with it. some days its worse. I also have a similar( maybe the same) rash on my arms and legs but it seems to be a little better. My mom seems to be having similar problems but hasn't seen a dermatologist.
In just a couple days little tiny bumps have appeared and remained over my arms and legs and my back and stomach. When the rash began, I stopped the vitamins. I have noticed that during the day the itch is not as bad but at night the itch is worse and the bumps appear more read and full. I used some benedryl and cortisone cream one night before bed and I still fell asleep for about three hours and then woke from the itch and had to apply the cream again.
hi my name is kayla gray im 18 and this is my first pregnancy. i have been experiancing severe itchy legs for a week now. what can i do to make is stop?
For 3 days now I have been getting seemingly random 'hot spots' on my legs, they start as a small heat ***** feeling and 'bloom' out into a larger area of warmth. This is not painfull and there are no visible effects on my skin. I do spend a lot of time on the floor with the children , could this be some sort of allergy to the carpet? The carpet is not new and there is no external irritation to the skin. Or should I see a doctor about it?
About a month ago I started jogging/running. My problem is my legs start itching so bad that I have to stop. It starts at my ankles and then goes up my legs. My dh told me to start pushing through it and it will go away if I just keep going. So I did that today and it started going up my stomach, so I decided it was time to stop because it was just too much to handle, and I was afraid that my whole body would end up like that.
these rashes itch so bad and are so extreme i itch my self raw and have huge scabs every where, my bottom my back my feet legs arms toes fingers chest, this strange rash is so bad i cant wear shoes or clothes because of the scabbing. I did go to the ER and they put me on prednisone and atarax but that did not work. i look like a freak of nature and i am in pain. i can not sleep because i itch so bad and when i do fall asleep i wake up itching and blood all over.
so aubree has been home for a couple of hours now and i just went to check on her and her forehand is covered in little red/brownish bumps and it looks like it is on her chest as well.. there are a whole bunch of them.. i checked her arms and legs and there are a few bumps that look like pimples but nothing like what is on her chest and forehead.. is this just heat rash? I am just terrified its something else like an allergic reaction to the meds..
I have had this on my neck near my collar bone (orginal site) eight years ago, on both legs, and on my arms. At this time I have a rash on my left arm, under side and on my trunk on the rib area. Yes, they do correspond in area. The rash looks like a contact dermititis would look. I use benadryl and steriodal cream with moderate success. I have been perscribed steriods in the past but, this nearly threw me into diabetes so I would like not to take them again.
Hi, Pregnancy related allergy reaction are known and seen anytime in pregnancy. They present with lesions anywhere in the body and are relieved with end of pregnancy and anti-allergics. How are you doing now? Have you consulted an allergy specialist for your symptoms? Have you had any benefit from calamine lotion and antihistamine medications? This could be related to hormonal changes associated with the pregnancy and postpartum period.
I am in my 25th week of pregnancy and am starting to suffer from really bad dry, itchy skin on lmy upper legs, mostly thighs and buttocks. Its so dry that the skin is cracked and leaving brown shaded marks where the skin has become very dry. Am using E45 cream wash and lotion, the past 3days which has helped soothe the itch but the dryness seems to be getting worse and spreading to my lower legs. Feels as if all the moisture in my skin has been sapped away. Help!
I also have pustules along my side, and sometimes I get them on my arms or legs. Could it be an allergic reaction to the pregnancy? I haven't switched soaps, deoderant or anything like that.
Now this is my second pregnancy and I am 5 weeks barely and I got a very itchy rash again. However, this one looks different - like tons of mosquito bites and is only in my legs and arms, not my belly, they do itch a lot. I got a few on my back, but none in my belly. Could this be PUPPS again? I am desperate because I do not want to go through the same itching thing throughout my whole pregnancy. Help, Thanks, Diana Jones.
