Rash while pregnant

Common Questions and Answers about Rash while pregnant


Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced a rash while being pregnant? 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.
213739 tn?1215486009 Hi Girls, Well, when I posted that I had my BFP, I also said I'd been having some skin pain. I just got my BFP on Tuesday and have been having horrible skin pain all on my left side. I haven't gone to the doc. and today it got so bad I finally called. They think it's the beginning of shingles. AHHH....I'm wondering how this is going to affect the baby as I know it's like the chicken pox.
213739 tn?1215486009 Well, we haven't been lucky in escaping anything this winter so now I'm worried...My daughter got a note sent home on Tuesday that she has someone in her class who was diagnosed with Fifths Disease. Apparently the incubation period is 7-28 days and they really don't have any signs until the rash appears and by then they aren't contagious however, they said Pregnant Women are NOT supposed to be around them.

While it can occur at any time during the pregnancy, Prurigo Gestationis usually occurs during the second half of the pregnancy. There is no cure for it, but a physician can prescribe topical ointments to control it. The rash disappears shortly after delivery. 5.
Avatar f tn Hey ladies has anyone else had a cold/flu while pregnant? Is it bad?
Avatar f tn I got a rash all over my face,arms,and back.
121828 tn?1333464491 i have seen children diagnosed with fifths who only had the the rash on their torso. your sister would be in the clear since the rash appears after the child is no longer contagious. the only concern would be if someone else in family has it. a lot of these illnesses present only minor and often unnoticable symptoms while the person is still contagious. i would errr on the side of caution.
Avatar f tn Has anyone gotten a belly rash while pregnant. I'm 14 weeks and I have a rash just on my belly and chest.
Avatar n tn How can i treat an aleric rash that was on my cheast and now spread to my face its a bunch of little red bumps ive had reactions like this while not pregnant and ive always taken benadril but i dont want to harm the baby ...
2008858 tn?1343844041 my daughter is nearly 6 months old and this morning while changing her i noticed she is starting to come out in these spots. the head is white/yellow but around it seems really red. there is about 3 at the moment, spaced over her tummy and a few i can see starting on her back. anyone have any idea, maybe chicken pox? in herself she is fine playing and smiling so just wondered if anyone know anything thanks!
Avatar f tn Its so confusing because there have been so many women who have gotten pregnant while using a birth control contraceptive.
Avatar f tn Get some cortisone cream. Apply to the affected area twice a day. It could be a heat rash, even though it's winter. Our bodies are a lot hotter while we are pregnant. Or... Have you changed washing detergents, perfume, anything like that?
Avatar f tn Was just wondering if anyone has had shingles while they were pregnant.

11391201 tn?1422188120 Yeah ive had little rashes too.
Avatar f tn it started when i was 7 or 8 weeks pregnant. i am now almost 11 weeks pregnant and it only seems to be getting worse. it is not an allergic reaction or anything else that makes sense. i am going crazy because the itchy feeling never goes away. it feels like hives and looks like it but for having it this long it is impossible for it to be a reaction please help.
Avatar n tn Even when I would come home the doctor would give me a stress pack of steroids I would experience the mild rash daily. With each day the rash would worsen. Docotrs should listen to patients more often. I attribute the rash to the steroids. I would even eliminate food in the morning and not eat anything and I would still experience the rash.
Avatar m tn My stomach that was always flat, now is growing bigger and bigger like pregnant woman while my blood pressure is getting lower and lower and I almost fainted twice, feel tired and cant move sometimes, when drink coffee symptoms get worse, my blood pressure is lower than 100 now, when two months ago I had high blood pressure like 135-140. Gaining weight also, while hardly eat at all. Several months ago I also had rash all over the body like nettle rash.
