I'm 25w2d and I have had the rash for a month I've been to my ob twice my primary 3 times a walk in clinic once and the er twice. It's nothing like an allergic reaction and it's not infections or harming me or the baby just annoying the poo out of me. It's a type of dermatitis due to me having super dry sensitive skin and being pregnant so it's basically a pregnancy related/caused dermatitis..
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.
I had a rash...my doc have me benadryl...it was gone with in a day...
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.
I suddenly developed this rash on the back of my legs that seemed to come on over night and it itches like crazy. Its all splotchy. Anyone ever had this during pregnancy? My on said its from hormones. I've try calamine lotion but its not working. Any suggestions????
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.
Only on my tummy tho, I use the baby oil on my legs, boobs, back, butt and arms and the rash isnt any of those places. Any suggestions on what it is or what I should do.
Anyone else has had a heat rash during pregnancy?
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.
With my first two pregnancies they told me it was pupps a pregnancy rash.. Well I've moved since then an my new Dr who works for the mayo health system said it wasnt pupps but a different type of pregnancy rash.. Its almost like hives.. The Dr has had me on steroids an then benadryl every 4 hours..
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.
Apparently there's a rash that 1% of mommy's get towards the end of their pregnancy, I'm 37&2, and have had this horrible rash all over my hands and feet, and its spreading to my legs. Its like poison oak, tiny little bumps and itches so bad, but of course scratching makes it worse :( any suggestions to make it go away or relieve the itching? Hopefully my baby won't come for a few more weeks, but it I can't handle the itch!
