Rash while pregnant
Hi, I am 17 weeks pregnant.  Since the begining of my pregnant I have had this terrible itchy rash under my arms.  I also have pustules along my side, and sometimes I get them on my arms or legs.  Could it be an allergic reaction to the pregnancy? I haven't switched soaps, deoderant or anything like that.

Your skin is much more sensitive in pregnancy. It's possible you need hypoallergenic formulas of yor current products. However I would talk to your OB and make sure it's nothing more serious

I developed hives a couple of times during my 1st preganancy. Still don't know what caused it but the doctor said your body changes during pregnancy so things that wouldn't normally bother you can effect you differently during pregnancy. I haven't had hives since, that was 9 years ago. Just check in with your doctor. I'm sure it will be fine.
Take care.
