Chest rash in pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Chest rash in pregnancy


Avatar f tn I get that on my forearms, inner upper arms. Sides 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 f tn Rashes are common in pregnancy so I've read. I had a heat rash right on my chest between my boobs and it itched like crazy, just use some cortezone twice daily and try not to scratch...if it gets worse I would contact your Dr.
Avatar f tn If it doesnt go away, id tell you OB. I had a rash that started out on my chest last pregnancy, and it spreaded down to my hips. I was diagnosed with PUPPS. It was very itchy and required a prescribed ointment/pill.
Avatar n tn Hi ladies, I have a really itchy rash all over my chest under and between my breasts. I'm in the first trimester and I'm not sure if it's pupp rash or heat rash as i live in a hot climate. What can I do to make this go away or even just soothe the itch?
Avatar n tn I think just about every pregnant woman has a bit of eczema (rashes) during pregnancy, I've had the same rash between my boobs, under my armpits sometimes.. cortizone 10 will take away the itch!

Avatar m tn Hello, From the picture,it looks like herpes zoster. is a viral disease characterized by a painful skin rash with blisters in a limited area on one side of the body, often in a stripe.Diagnosis is by clinical examination, Tsanck smear, VZV-specific IgM antibody in blood and polymerase chain reaction for VZV DNA.Treatment involves oral steroids and antiviral drugs. Pls elaborate more on the symptoms so that I can help you in a better way. Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn I recently got a rash on my chest, below my nipple. It's a series of small raised red bumps (very close together) - maybe 12 -15. It's been a little over a week and they look to be fading a bit now. They're not painful, but can itch (although not all the time). I'm sexually active with multiple partners in the past few months, but always wear protection.
Avatar m tn May I mention that I did take a long 5 hour cycle trip while being exposed in the sun and got this sun burn, but the rash did not start itching straight away. From the research I did, there is a possibility of this being a poison ivy rash. Is it? The rash area on the skin now becomes less sensitive upon touch. the itchyness is felt more after a shower or while sweating. Can anybody give me a hint at what this might be? Have you encountered similar symptoms? thanks in advance.
Avatar m tn hi, i know i've been told categorically that protected sex = no risk. well i have develop a chicken pox type rash, its in my chest, back, face, neck and scalp mostly. it doesn't itch and 6 days into it, its not crusting over. im freeking out because this is typical of a type of HIV rash also. what are your thoughts? it happened 63 days after what i think is exposure? would you recommend to test given the chain of events? or is it still condom sex = no risk?
10391405 tn?1412718263 You could have an ectopic pregnancy. Have you had your first ultrasound? And the rash seems normal. I know pregnancy can cause them from hormonal reasons and all the stretching of your skin.
Avatar n tn t gone down. I was originally prescribed this medication because of a fungal itch rash I had on my chest which my doctor told me is called tinea versicolor. I am wondering is the pimple the same as the rash on my chest and stomach (Tinea versicolor) or is it something entirely different? On the left underarm another pimple resides but it is not in the center like how my right underarm with two other pimles there. If i lift my arms there are no pain, but the pain comes on its own.
Avatar f tn Has anyone broken out with rashes during pregnancy? I have had this rash around my lower neck and chest. Some days its feels really irritated and other days its just red. This never happened with my 1st pregnancy.
8102917 tn?1402457914 ( im just starting to recover from some type of poisin ivy looking rash that was all over my legs and now I have some type of allergic reaction to the sun or heat rash. Its a small red bump rash all over my stomach, chest, and arms since Thursday and its soo itchy.
Avatar f tn I developed a rash on my chest about a week ago, mainly on the right side and it looks like mosquito bites and itches a lot but not constantly. I don't know whether it's just a rash or if it's connected to STDs. I haven't had intercourse for over a month and I wasn't exposed on anything that might cause an allergy. I haven't used anything on it yet. Could someone help me figuring out what it is?
1554910 tn?1297429911 Women can experience this rash at any time during their pregnancy, but most cases of ICP occur in the second and third trimester. Other symptoms are yellowing of the eye whites, loss of appetite, fatigue, pale stools and dark urine. ICP occurs more often in pregnant women who have a relative who has experienced the same type of pregnancy rash, women who are carrying multiples and women who have had previous liver damage. ICP tends to recur in subsequent births. 2.
Avatar n tn About 2 weeks ago I got a rash on my chest. The rash itself looks like reddish-pink spots on my chest, some darker then others, and as big as about 2 cms and as small as a dot. They appear in one spot go away, and show up on another. It is primarily on my chest and a little on my traps. What type of rash does this sound like? I did some research on the internet and it resembles a maculopapular rash. What could cause this type of rash?
Avatar n tn Hi, There are two main differentials that come forward here. 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. Scabies presents with itchy papular (bumps) lesions on the inner parts of the body such as underarms, between fingers and private body parts.
1095404 tn?1333992839 No, honey, being itchy all the time is NOT normal in pregnancy, at all. Itching *without* a rash, especially in the third trimester, should raise red flags for your doctor--but if he or she is like most OBs, then he/she hears about it from patients sometimes but has no explanation and so just reassures you. Have you noticed certain times of day when the itching is worse? Certain activities that seem to exacerbate it? Where do you itch the most?
Avatar f tn It could be a number of different things, it most likely is nothing to worry about pregnancy has made me get rashes in different places on my body and my doctor says it's nothing to worry about just watch it If its there for more than 7 days gets much worse or you develop a fever than call your Dr other wise its nothing to worry about :)
