Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on arms during pregnancy


Avatar m tn 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. However, PUPPP does disappear after delivery. Anti-itching topical medications, antihistamines and topical corticosteroids can be used to control the itching but they are to be taken after consulting a gynecologist.

Anti-itching topical medications, antihistamines and topical corticosteroids can be used to control the itching.
Avatar n tn I've gotten several of those that come and go, its normal during your pregnancy, just put bacetration on it and it should clear up
Avatar n tn For the last 20 years I have gotten small red bumps on the sides of my fingers. They don't blister. They start out as one or two and then I might get a few more and they seem to cluster up on only the sides of my fingers. They are not itchy but they are sore to the touch when you run your finger over them. It feels like you have a splinter. They are slightly raised and red in color. They will stay for varying lengths of time and then dry up and go away.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have noticed a couple - very few and far between - tiny red pinpoint dots on my arms. I have not noticed any on any other parts of my body, just arms. They are flat, not raised at all, very tiny (not noticable unless you look really close to my arm). All of them are single pinpoint dots - no grouping. If I push on them, they do not seem to disappear completely (only fade a bit), but if I scratch one, it will disappear and then reappear within a couple seconds.
Avatar f tn During the bad times I take about 1800 mgs a day. Also, during real intense times, I gob mineral ice on my arms before going to bed. I also carry it around with me in the event I have an "itch attack" while I'm out. It's messy but it does the trick for me.
Avatar f tn Alike PUPPP, prurigo of pregnancy appears on stretch marks. It appears during second trimester of pregnancy and last week of pregnancy. Usually after childbirth, it spreads to the entire body, but within three weeks or so, it disappears Papular Dermatitis of Pregnancy characteristic features are extremely itchy, raised spots, which are red in color and get covered by crust. The spots are never found in groups.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn It will be harder to get an accurate diagnosis of the things on your arms and hands while you are on daily therapy. At the end of pregnancy, it is far more important to be on suppression to protect the baby than it is to sort out if these lesions are herpetic. Another option might be for the dermatologist to biopsy one of the lesions, and if one is fresh, they might even be able to do a quick visual diagnosis of something else, they are pretty good at that.
Avatar n tn i have little bumps on vagina on the outside of it in between my thigh and the lips of the vagina. then i have two lines one on each side of the outside of my vagina that also itch and hurt. they are sore and itchy and sometimes the whole area down there burns after sex. im really worried and freaking out because im 23 weeks preg atm and i dont want to pass this on to the baby however i have had it for a while.. just thought it was 'normal'. the lips of my vagina hurts when we have sex.
Avatar f tn Last night I got in the shower and noticed my arms are covered on the underneath, worse on the upper arms but all the way to my wrists. Its also down my upper sides. I do notice its worse where I've had stretch marks before from being fat at one point. However I have zero itching or bumps on my belly or abdomen at all so I don't think its puppp. Also nothing on hands and feet. Is it just hives?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn on the first day i noticed just a small amount of bloody discharge and thought i was starting and put a tampon in-i noticed a few hours later nothing was really goin on.. two days pass and nothing so i bought a pregnancy test yesterday- last night i started getting really bad cramps and started-so i never took the test. (this was later evening) which was really heavy. today while using the bathroom a large clot came out of me- which i know is semi normal (i have never clotted before.
Avatar f tn During my pregnancy and every since, I fought problems with the skin on my upper arms on the outer sides. I was not fortunate to have that beautiful glowing skin. I've been to many dermatologists within the past 4 years for diagnosis and treatment. Several dermatologists have told me that I have a combination of Keratosis Pilaris and Folliculitis. They've treated me with numerous atopical cremes, ointments, etc, but no luck.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I get that on my forearms, and.my inner upper arms. Sides of.my thighs sometimes as well. Been very dry this pregnancy. Lotion multiple times a day. Doesn't make it go away but less itchy and irritating. Known for woman to break out in hives during pregnancy. I'm assuming that's what it is. Its getting better as pregnancy continues. I'm 36 weeks.
Avatar n tn I just found out I was pregnant and I have been incredibly itchy ever since. I just noticed some bumps on my legs in different spots and they look like mosquito bites, but aren't. All parts of my body itch and especially the bottom of my feet, my wrists, and my breasts. When I was pregnant with my daughter 7 years ago, I did not develop the itchyness until the end of the work day and towards the 7th month; I am only about 5 weeks along tops, but every pregnancy is different.
Avatar n tn He would lie on his stomach with his arms folded under his pillow, raise up enough to clear the pillow and bump his head face first into the pillow. 2. He would bump his head until he fell asleep, but I don't remember him bumping his head after he fell asleep. "Head Bumping while sitting up": 1. He sits "Indian style" with his left heel on his right thigh and his right heel on his left thigh, has a pillow in his lap, and bumps his head against the back of the chair.
Avatar n tn Prurigo of pregnancy consists of very itchy, tiny bumps that can appear almost anywhere on the skin. This condition can appear during any trimester, with a few bumps appearing and increasing in number each day. It usually remains for several months, and may even persist postpartum. Reoccurrence during subsequent pregnancies is variable. Treatment usually includes topical corticosteroids and antihistamines. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Well this month, Nov 24, Nov 25, and Nov 26 I noticed some light bleeding, pinkish color just when I would wipe. Nothing on a pad or on underwear...then it stopped. During those 3 days I had slight aches mostly by my left hip bone and then over the next few days i started getting slight aches in my lower abdomin. Nothing painful or sharp, just kind of annoying ache and cramping. Im feeling bloated but it seems more just in the front.
Avatar n tn Congrats on your pregnancy, little piggy! I'm a 2-time IVFer and just wanted to chime in and say that I don't believe bedrest / days of rest post transfer is actually necessary to get pregnant (my clinic has monitored the research and says there's no conclusive evidence that it makes a difference). But my philosophy is: it can't hurt, so if you can lie back and relax after the transfer, do it! On the other hand, if you can't for some reason, don't stress about it...
Avatar n tn because it is possible to get razor bumps like you can get on your legs. It is also possible to get in-grown hairs. Other than that, I would have to say ask a Dr. :) Good luck!
Avatar n tn I am looking for more info on pregnancy after an endometrial ablation. I had an ablation in May 2002. January 2003 I was not feeling well and went to the family doctor. She thought it may be an ectopic pregnancy since I was told I was sterile. I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue.
Avatar m tn I cannot x-ray you or prescribe anything for you until after your pregnancy. When your pregnancy is over, the problem will probably resolve on its own." I didn't matter if the woman walked in with a walker because she was having so much trouble walking, and it was related to her pregnancy. The baby was pressing on a nerve or something. So this lady must consult her obstetrician about her rash. If she doesn't have one, she needs one.
Avatar n tn I also noticed that it seems to cut down on the red bumps I get on my thighs once in a while. The bumps on my thighs are something I have had ever since I was a kid (on and off). They are different than the bumps on my eyes however. The little bumps on my thighs are more like pimples and come and go. Anyway, it seems like when I take the Oil of Oregano, my skin is much better looking as a whole and those go away.
Avatar n tn ok, but can anyone on this forum answer a question directly. Is it possible to have a false negative during an outbreak that had been going on, for say, a week.
Avatar n tn I noticed that Kimberly Fate said that her granuloma anulare cleared up when pregnant. I to have had this for many(too many) years. Mine also cleared up during pregnancy & when I was on the pill. Could this disorder be related to hormones? I have often thought so. My condition has worsen since I have gone through menopause. Has any research been done in this area?
