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.
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.

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 n tn I tried seeeing my doctor but she said it could be due to me being pregnant. But then relized that husband and daughter also had same exact rash like itch, Well they are not pregnant! And then doctor suggested getting an exterminater to check for bed bugs. Did that, and NO bed bugs!! Its not dry skin because we use lotion to moisturize our skin. My doctor also has said it is not scabies. I been using all the same products like soap, lotion, detergent ect for as long as i can remember!
Avatar m tn It’s at a point now where I can’t shave because I know I will wake up with a worse rash. About a year ago I started to get a rash on both sides of my nostrils, the doctor prescribed hydrocortisone, and this again reduced the redness but didn’t completely clear the rash. After many visits to the doctor and many prescriptions for various creams, a year later I still have this rash. Admittedly, this is the worst it has been but I am still at a loss for a cure.
Avatar m tn It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn t normally get cramps though )then it to had stopped but while it was happening my skin started getting bumps. And lots of them.. I looked online but it spread hsv outbreaks come on one side of the body my rash is on both arms and the inner thigh of my right leg it is now spreading to my left hand...
Avatar n tn The patch has a rough texture in comparision of the surrounding skin. And upon rubbing the region, some layers of skin (dead skin, rough like big flakes of dandruff) also come off. I am quite worried about this. Can somebody help?
Avatar f tn hello, I am a female soldier whom is currently serving in Afghanistan, I normally have combination skin that would occasionally have eczema breakouts, but while deployed and having to bath in chemically treated water my face has took a turn for the worst. I have dry patches that have darken my skin in some places, Inching, redness, cracking, and even pain. I can’t find a moisturizer to stop the drying, and what can I use to heal the dark patches. How can I keep my skin healthy?
Avatar n tn Hi Based on your description of the rash as an orangey raised rash which seems to be aggravated by sweating, then this may be a case of fungal infection or a dermatitic skin condition. Dermatitis may present similarly. Only that dermatitis may be itchy and the rash may not be as well demarcated. You may continue with the steroid cream and use this only as necessary. It is not advisable that you use this for a long time.
Avatar f tn Hi there! I am asking about a skin rash or something that I have because I am out in the middle of the bush for work at the moment. I noticed about 6 days ago what I thought was a mosquito bite. It was red, raised and itchy. I forgot about it after a couple of days and then I noticed that it no longer looked like a mosquito bite. It had a small scabby centre (from picking the scab from itching) and then around it was red like a perfect circle. The skin wasn't raised.
Avatar f tn just started treatment 5 days ago (it already feels like forever). I have many symptoms, but the latest and greatest is my skin is so sensitive!! I have a rash on my torso, but it's not so much itchy as incredibly sensitive. Trying to dress for work everyday is awful, does anyone have any good tips on managing this?? Is everyone else working through their treatment?
Avatar f tn I am 31wks pregnant with a rash that has persisted 2.5 months. The rash started with what I thought was an acne-like breakout, I assumed it was preg related and treated with all the normal pimple creams and washes. After a week or two I decided that it was a rash and treated with 1% cortisone cream, it became slightly better but still would not go. My OB gave me some Amlactin lotion to try, it dried my skin out but no relief.
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?
