Itchy rash during early pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash during early pregnancy


Avatar f tn I had a developed an itchy rash on the back of my hands, on my wrists, stomach, and legs. The physician at the Urgent Care center gave me an steriod shot and prescribed predinisone 10mg. He questioned me about my last period, but he never conducted an urine sample to do a pregnancy test. After taking the meds for a week, I found out that I'm 5 weeks pregnant. It's scary because I know my pregnancy is very early and I don't want any developmental issues going on with my unborn.
Avatar f tn PUPPP is the most common, however it is seen more on stretch marks and during the third trimester. 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.
262365 tn?1268508268 this rash can erupt at any time during pregnancy and then spots continue to appear until childbirth when they clear rapidly. Complications This condition causes no complications in the mother, but studies suggest that fetal death rates are increased.
Avatar n tn Is it normal for boobs, back and stomach to itch during pregnancy my partner is nearly 2 months pregnant and we want to know if it is. We read it might be due to her skin stretching.
216278 tn?1308861082 Has anyone had anything like hives during pregnancy? A few weeks ago (maybe even months at this point), I had one rash thing on my abdomen, but not near any stretch marks or my bra line. I told DH, at the time, that it almost reminded me of hives, when I'd gotten them before. But it was only one. Since then, however, I've gotten more. I bet I have close to 10 of them now and they are all on my torso (almost in the same area around my body, but on both sides of it) Anyone?

1095404 tn?1333992839 If you are itching during pregnancy without a rash (other than the excoriations that can result from scratching), it could be ICP (intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy). I had it with my daughter. It is potentially very dangerous and should be taken very seriously. It does not typically set in quite as early as you describe, but it is not unheard of either. Could you describe in a bit more detail?
8102917 tn?1402457914 Hey ladies im 12 weeks 4 days and I'm breaking out with a horrible itchy rash all over my legs and it's been spreading i called my dr he said just use benadryl and cortisone cream (which I've been doing) but the nurse recommended going get a steroid shot.  My question is have any of you gotten that type of shot during first trimester/pregnancy? And did it cause any problems?
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.
384896 tn?1335294331 When I was pg with my dd, I had a rash all the time, was itchy, especially at night. It drove me crazy. The Dr. said it was a rash some women get when pg. i only had it with my dd. I am hoping it doesn't happen this time around. I used the aveno lotion, it seemed to help a little. Your Dr may be able to give you better advice or something else to help.
8102917 tn?1402457914 Omg. Me too.
8102917 tn?1402457914 Any other ladies having problems sleeping at night? I stay so tired during the day because I'm not getting good sleep at night. Had anyone taken melatonin during pregnancy? Or what helps you sleep?
Avatar f tn I started being really itchy at 30weeks with no rash, told my doctor and they drew blood to check my liver, apparently you can get a pregnancy induced liver disease that goes away after you give birth, in my case my results came back negative so it's just another normal pregnancy symptom.
Avatar f tn this time also rashes are bad specially during night time...i am now taking zyrtec 5mg daily one dose....had done a ultrasound during 5th week but there was no heart beat....Dr said everything is fine for heart beat we have to repeat the scan after 2 weeks.....he had also prescribe me dupashtone but after searching the forum i had not taken it as no one has written good about it.....i am now very much worried as we desperately need this baby....
Avatar n tn I have a maculopapular rash on both my legs. They're red and itchy and i would like to know if this could be a symptom of hiv. I had oral sex and protected vaginal sex with a prostitute about two months ago.
Avatar f tn Hey everyone! I am 5 weeks pregnant and have this extremely itchy rash on my body, particularly my arms, chest and trunk. It looks like tiny red bumps and appears to be more severe when I scratch (but it's so hard not to!!!). I've read about pregnancy rashes, but they usually occur much later in the pregnancy. Does anyone know what could be going on and is this normal??
1554910 tn?1297429911 I am nervous because apart from in two or three spots when it first appeared, it is not itchy, and was reading that Pityriasis Rosea can be dangerous in early pregnancy. Is that what this is? I have a couple other photos too.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone, I am 19 week and I have itchy skin for the past 2 weeks now, I got rash over my inner thights and my arms, some on my lower back. I tried Aveeno oatmeal bath, Palmer‘s cocoa butter, Eucerin lotion, nothing works on me... what should I do????
Avatar n tn Typically, the rash appears during the last 2 to 3 weeks of pregnancy and occasionally during the last few days. Usually, the rash clears up promptly after delivery and does not recur during subsequent pregnancies. I hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn Not sure what natural remedy can help and safe during pregnancy. I am hoping this is pregnancy related and it will be gone after first trimester. I am concerned. Which health profession should I seek further help from? Will this affect my baby?
Avatar f tn s just your skin stretching. And even if you drink a lot of water you need more during pregnancy because your blood volume increases. Maybe Try baby lotion or coconut oil after your shower.
1433383 tn?1287665280 Im just wondering if anyone has any experience with cholestasis of pregnancy. It's not a common disorder, but I just took a blood test for it and I've heard it takes about a week to get a result. If anyone hasn't heard of it, it is a liver disorder, apparently sometimes during pregnancy your liver will create too much bile, the bile salts will rise to the skin and cause severe itching.
Avatar f tn me too iam sufring a rash and acne too in all over my face and back and butts and chest do I have to use that cream for acne too?
Avatar f tn Hello, This can be due to papular dermatitis of pregnancy which presents as an extremely itchy rash consisting of red, raised spots that look like insect bites. this rash can erupt at any time during pregnancy and then spots continue to appear until childbirth when they clear rapidly. Apply some calamine lotion on the rash and consult a doctor for steroids prescription if the rash persists. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn Does the rash come and go? I had a rash that only came at night. If you are past 13 weeks you can take zyrtec and benedryl at the same time. I took aveeno non fragrance body wash bath during the day and at night. It worked. I still take aveeno baths. When I had the rash I was 19-20 weeks. Now im 23 weeks.
