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?
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 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 n tn I have this rash on my lower stomach were I fasten my jeans it's very itchy and I scratch it until it's starts oozing a clear fluid. It seems to be spreading up toward my naval. It goes and comes but is very irriating. I noticed that it's spending in little pimples some are combined maybe with 3 little pimple-like in a circle then its some small pimple like spreaded randomly on my stomach which are also itchy. What could this be?
Avatar f tn When I was pregnant the first time, I got a strange, itchy rash on my stomach and arms around the 7th month and it stayed for about a month. My doctor had never seen it before, and he's been a doctor for about 30 years! Now I am 12 weeks pregnant, and the other day out of nowhere I broke out in an itchy rash all over my entire body! I have no idea what caused it as I had not used any lotions or eaten any different foods that day. I took benadryl and it was gone in the morning.
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.
676912 tn?1332812551 Yes! You totally describe me as well. Although I'm only itchy on my stomach and extremely itchy on my boobs, it drives me nuts when the itches attack me in public..ugh so stressful! What helps me is the Cocoa Butter cream I got at wal-mart, you should try it! It relieves the itches a little bit and it helps with preventing stretch marks caused by them. Although I'm already full of the stretch marks I still use it and it helps me most of the time!
Avatar f tn Two red blotches appeared on chest. Five days later, after using Dial soap, my chest and stomach were covered in red bumps. They aren't itchy and don't bother me except for their appearance. Could these be from allergies? Should I go to the doctor?
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 just have one it just came out of the no where I'm also 29 weeks
Avatar f tn I have this itchy pregnancy rash..really annoying anyone else have this what do u do for urs?? I also heard 70% of women who have this are carrying or already delivered boys. Is this true??
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?
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.
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.
9616417 tn?1404867488 I got a terrible rash all over my stomach during my first pregnancy. I won't use it this time around, because I'm afraid it'll happen again. It was torture!
492921 tn?1321289896 also with the previous 2 but not as bad. It drives me nuts. I get these itchy bumps on my stomach and back that itch like crazy and then my arms and legs are so dry it drives me nuts. My boobs (esp. the nipples) have been really itchy as well. My back is the worst because it mostly itches where I can't reach it, figures, eh? I use cocoa butter body wash and lotion, doesn't help much.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else has the PUPPPS rash during pregnancy? What helped relieve the itching and rash other than steroid cream?
Avatar f tn There are some rashes associated with pregnancy like Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP), Prurigo of pregnancy, Pruritic folliculitis of pregnancy, and Pemphigoid gestationis. 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.
405855 tn?1217100767 s actually a symptom of pregnancy (itchy tummy and nipples) and the bigger your stomach gets the more itchy you can get! Try using oatmeal lotions or lotions w/oatmeal in them, chamomile too. Those are both calming agents and work wonderfully!
