Bumps on skin during pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on skin during pregnancy


Avatar n tn I have a lump on my leg I have had for quite a while and recent have developed one more on my thigh and one on my hip (all on the same leg). The lump came about 5 years ago and started very small and is growing at a slow rate. It is about the diameter of a pencil eraser right now. It does not hurt but I am concerned now that I have developed 2 more ont he same leg. The 2 developed during my first pregnancy last year.
Avatar f tn I find my skin dries out like crazy during pregnancy ( my hair too). Once I'm dry out of the shower my skin gets almost crusty and I have to slather myself with lotion. Best thing I've found is to not shower as often (I try to go every 3 days), not have the water as hot, and put lotion on while your skin is still damp to seal in the moisture. I've gotten a few itchy/hives areas too but they go away in a day or so when I'm lotioning like crazy. Coconut oil may also help.
Avatar f tn Went to go see a minute clinic and she say I have warts. Have anyone got into this during pregnancy? My husband don't even have warts. So I don't know how I got it. I'm going in to see my ob doctor and see what she say.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn Everyone feels better when they know the reason why. The sight of blood is very unnerving during a pregnancy, and I think they should be more accomadating in figuring out the reasons WHY it happened.
Avatar f tn Im 12 wks pregnant and just now i realized i have a few bumps clustered on one of my butt cheek... Does anyone have or had this happen during pregnancy? What is it and what should i do?
1095404 tn?1333996439 excessive scratching can cause redness, swelling, bumps, broken blood vessels beneath the skin, and eventually broken skin. if you feel the need to itch, try to use a soft cloth in place of your fingers/fingernails. i learned to keep a washrag with me and it worked well to keep me from scratching my skin off (which i did a LOT of before i came up with the rag). hang in there! and let us know how it goes.
Avatar f tn They could just be skin tags. Very common during pregnancy. They think that their cause by the elevation in hormones... I highly doubt it has anything to do with the yeast infection.
Avatar f tn I have an 8 month old son. During my pregnancy my doctor did pap smears and cultures on me every trimester to make sure I didn't have any STDs or anything harmful to me or my child. My first test result I had Chlamydia but my doctor prescribed me something to take care of it. My other results came back normal and I had nothing. I had not been sexually active during my pregnancy and I am not sexually active now and I haven't been since I found out I was pregnant (over a year ago).
Avatar n tn One week ago I had some painful swelling and 2 red bumps on my outer vagina. It almost seemed as if there was a pimple forming. The swelling lasted about 2-3 days. During this time, I also developed a sinus infection & was put on antibiotics. I got what seemed to me to be a yeast infection - a mixture of cottage cheese like and white milky discharge. There is not an odor to the dischage. It is quite usual for me to get a yeast infection when I am on antibiotics.
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 I suddenly have developed tiny bumps on my upper lip. A few months ago this happened in just one little patch but it went away, and I can't remember if I did anything. But just a few days ago they appeared again on both sides of my upper lip. Then, the next day they had spread and now go all the way along the ridge of my upper lip. They aren't particularly noticeable except they change the shape of my lip, making it look smaller than it was in the places where they are on the very edge.
Avatar f tn for the past few days my breast have been a little tender and today i noticed tiny white bumps on both nipples. they come and go. im on cd 29 and have 32-39day cycles. has anyone know what this might be from? thanks!
Avatar f tn If you have gained a lot of weight during your pregnancy then this is a possibility. Prurigo of pregnancy is due to abnormal hormone levels, will disappear on delivery and reappear on subsequent pregnancy. These conditions are harmless both for mother and baby. Steroid creams & ointments, moisturizing creams, aloe vera lotions, wet soaks, calamine lotions are usually enough to control both.
Avatar f tn Some time during my last pregnancy I my husband noticed a bunch of dark colored spots on both sides of my labia I have counted 14 on one side and 9 on the other. Since then I have noticed that many of them are raised and hard. These range in size from a pin point to the size of an eraser. The larger ones are the ones that are raised and hard. I do not have any itching or discharge. I only get yeast infections if I take antibiotics. Luckily.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn So if your having this problem after using a pad or panty liner it is most like just skin irritation. Just stop the use of the pad and put lotion on the dry cracked skin ( Only on the Outside!! And use a Non-scented lotion to keep from further irritation!!
Avatar f tn This is a somewhat painful outpatient surgery where the cyst is opened and a device implanted into the gland with a balloon on the inside to ensure the duct does not close during healing, and a stint or straw draining all fluid out of the cyst. This contraption is left implanted for a week or longer and removed in a follow up appointment. A home remedy that usually works well for cyst is to take a very warm bath filled with 1 cup+ of sea salt and 1 cup+ of apple cider vinegar.
Avatar f tn 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.
1117137 tn?1345231505 I have read that if you are one to get an occasional break out before af your chances of break outs during pregnancy are higher... Great!! Mine aren't real noticeable either, just little bumps on my forehead and temple. It's funny cause when I would get a break out before af it's never been on my forehead, usually my chin or beside my nose!
Avatar f tn Ok, but do bumps like that normally occur during a yeast infection?
Avatar f tn Could be a combination of heat and pregnancy, though my money is on pregnancy. The rise in hormones makes your skin more sensitive to everything (thats why pregnant women burn easily). Also for some women, the hormones cause breakouts more than before. Check your facial wash ingredients to make sure there is nothing too strong that your newly sensitive skin doesn't like.you may need to seitch to using just luke warm water to wash your face. I have more problems than normal, but not much.
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'm also 18 and have the same thing i have no idea what it is, its like little tiny bumps on both sides on the labia minotra that is the same color as the rest of my skin and they don't hurt the skin feels kinda of ruff when you touch it. I don't know what it is or how i got it.... maybe its skin irratation or skin tags???
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 n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
