Avatar f tn hi, just curious if dry skin can be a sign of early pregnancy? i no im silly but if i get a small pain or tiny rash i think it could be my month! though for the past 2days i have had a small rash on my chest goin to my armpit that is very dry feeling, think it is something that didnt agree with me but u never no! anyone had patches of red dry skin on them?
Avatar n tn i dont care if its gone i just want to not itch as bad....my OB said it looked like the PUPP rash but she said its too early in pregnancy to have that rash but i am one of those people that anything can happen!!! i hope you get your rash under control but aveno is a great product for itchy skin.
Avatar f tn And also I have been told by the doctor to take early HPT to determine pregnancy as early as possible. I have had a chemical pregnancy which doctor suspects was due to low progesterone as my BBT is always in the lower range than normal with a cycle of 25-26 days. So the sooner I know I am pregnant the easier it will be to keep the baby. I read many women's stories of rashes very early in pregnancy. Since this thing never happened to me before I started making assumptions.
Avatar n tn Hi Skin rashes that occur during pregnancy can be non-specific (such as due to allergies, medicines, insect bites, skin infections, viral infections, parasites, tumours) or rashes specific to pregnancy called as specific dermatoses (skin disorders) of pregnancy. The various examples of pregnancy rashes are PUPPP - (pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy), papular dermatitis of pregnancy, prurigo gestationis, herpes gestationis and rarely impetigo herpetiformis.
1095404 tn?1333996439 Hey guys another question for you! Anyone else experienced itchy skin in pregnancy? Im 18 weeks and its driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn the fever associated with it is often low-grade and unnoticable in children. the rash that follows can be confused with sunburn or other skin irritations if you don't know what you're looking for. for ths reason, a lot of people don't know if they had it as kids (by the way, it's sooo much worse for adults who get it!!!!
Avatar f tn Just wondering if you received an answer from the doc about the rash, was it cholestasis of liver or something else? Did your doc mention if there is a safe topical for rashes/or just general itching during pregnancy?
Avatar f tn I found a red/tender rash under my boob. anybody else get a rash in the 3rd trimester? .....what does labor feel like in the beginning? This is my first pregnancy so I really dont know what to expect. I thought I should expect pain automatically but I have a high pain tolerance and the pain I've felt isnt bad. So far I'm feeling lightning, fatigue nausea cramping from my back into my vagina pressure from my baby pushing down and hot flashes.. am I going into labor or just dilating more?
Avatar f tn Never realised i'd have so many questions so early on (5wks 4 days)! This morning I have a rash all over my stomach, arms and thighs can anyone tell me if this is normal. I seem to be going from one thing to another.
1554910 tn?1297433511 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.
690039 tn?1277476022 Rose and Martika - Well, I've had the random twice a year type migraine before, and occassional tension headaches like everyone, but this pregnancy first differed the most from my last one in that 1. I was beyond exhausted and 2. I was getting a lot of bad headaches that felt like severe tension headaches, sometimes crossing over into migraine intensity and sensation... But then, my whole world turned upside down...
Avatar n tn I have NOT switched shaving cream, soap, deoderant, or any thing that would cause a rash like this one. I also had my blood drawn, because my doctor said that there is a skin rash that is found under the arm ( pit), and the rash is associated with diabetes. My blood work came back, and I am NOT diabetic, so the limits what the rash is even more. It is red and really soft, almost like velvet. It has turned almost a brownish color, but still has not gone completely away.
1995824 tn?1330382649 I guess the bile causes the itching. I was SO miserable, I had the pregnancy induced 4 weeks early, so I totally understand you stopping five days early. I'm not sure if you have tried heavy duty pain medication, or if that could be an option.
Avatar f tn The rash I have is not lighter or darker spots on the skin. It's like an allergy rash. There are raised red bumps in the area where the bruise was, almost as though I'm having an allergic reaction to the bruising. I have had problems with skin rashes in the past, and my allergist ran tests a few months ago that indicated I tested positive for an autoimmune disorder; however, I was told the tests could have been a false positive, so I really didn't need to be concerned.
Avatar n tn When cold air/water/etc touches the skin, the blood vessels in the skin constrict, reducing oxygen in the skin. In reaction to the low oxygen, the body produces a chemical reaction to produce an inflammatory agent into the area. The inflammation reaction causes bumps similiar to goose bumps to occur and a vasodilation of the blood vessels bring more blood and oxygen into the area. The skin looks red and bumpy and may feel warm to the touch.
Avatar f tn Hi there....I used to post here a lot after two early miscarriages. I'm now 34 1/2 weeks and things have been going fairly well (other than having contractions and pre-term labor that we stopped two weeks ago) Now, I have a little rash on my belly....little red pin-pricks....it itches some, but not uncontrollably. I called my doctor's office and the nurse said it was fairly common and possibly something called PUPPP, but I just wondered if anyone else had had this?
Avatar n tn In fact, I remember the first time I felt it was while I was still on vacation, and it was just a few days after I found that I had a ringworm rash (has nothing to do with worms - fungus on the skin). Anyway I treated that for well over 2 weeks until the rash/red spot was not visible for a few days. But ever since I had that damn thing I have felt that crawling sensation. No numbness, just spider crawling. I'm 30 - so for all I know I'm not pre-menopausal.
Avatar f tn Can someone tell me what either menopause (if it is early menopause as my mother and her mother had menopause early on) or if you can tell me if after-pregnancy hormone imbalances can cause these problems? I have had extensive blood work done, and although I get worse all the time, there was nothing indicating problems in my blood work.
176741 tn?1295237589 50 mcg. Shortly after, I could feel a change in the texture of my skin and then found a small looking rash on my torso. Then it slowly covered my whole body in the matter of a month and a half. My dr. thought that I was having a allergic reaction to laundry soap. It turned out to me that I am allergic to a dye that they put in the diffent dosage. So as of two days ago, I have all together changed meds to Synthroid and now taking two pills that are .
Avatar n tn Even more rare than PUPPP is a skin condition called prurigo of pregnancy (or papular eruptions of pregnancy), which is characterized by many tiny bumps that may look like bug bites. These eruptions can occur anywhere on your body, but you're most likely to get them on your hands, feet, arms, and legs. Although the eruptions can be itchy and annoying, prurigo of pregnancy appears to pose no risk to your baby.
1433383 tn?1287668880 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. It mostly starts in the hands and feet and is worse at night, it can spread to your entire body, causes no rash, and sometimes causes jaundice. Apparently it usually starts in the 3rd trimester. I am 35 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. On Friday night (of course I saw the dr.
Avatar n tn I am breastfeeding at night and early in the morning. I threw up throughout my pregnancy 10 times a day -- my doctor said it was hormones related to the skin. But I want to use something besides hopefully steriods to cure this problem or will it not clear up until I completely stop breastfeeding? I don't want to give up breastfeeding completely but since my daughter is almost 4 months old at this point I would rather do that than have this itchiness constantly because my milk supply is low.
Avatar n tn I have terribly pale skin which doesnt help when i get this rash. I read on a website quite a while back that exercise helps. My family has bought a treadmill so i have been on that up to half an hour everyday. I recently attended my school ball on Jul 19 and was extremely nervous. My dress was strapless so i was terrified of wearing it to my ball. My mum helped me put tan on in advance so i was a lovely golden colour.
Avatar f tn Can't use it dew to skin allergies and i get words and spelling mixed up because of my dyslexia.
Avatar n tn After being diagnosed a couple of weeks ago I have been inspecting my skin daily to see if there are any lesions. I have never noticed anything before I had this test. A couple of days ago I noticed what looked like a rash under my arm, in the armpit area. I went to the doctor and He did a PCR culture for Herpes. After looking at it he said if it was in my groin area he would be 50/50 on it being herpes, but since it was on my armpit he doubted it would be herpes. Still waiting for the results.
