Hi,
How are you?  Due to hormone changes and other physiologic changes during pregnancy, skin issues  such as hyperpigmentation, Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP), skin tags: and stretch marks may be observed. Acne , psoriasis, atopic dermatitis may also worsen with pregnancy. In particular, PUPPP is an outbreak of pale red bumps on the skin that can cause itching or may burn or sting. Many of these skin conditions usually clear up on their own after giving birth.  (ref: Ihttp://www.webmd.com/baby/skin-conditions-pregnancy) If the skin lesions persist, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Avoid taking any medications without clearing this first from your doctor. Take care and do keep us posted.
