HI EVERYONE. THIS IS MY SECOND TOPIC QUESTION. I HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME FIGURE SOMETHING OUT ON A CURE! I AM 21 WEEKS PREGNANY. AND I HAVE HAD A RASH UNDER MY BOOBS PRETTY MUCH SINCE MID DECEMBER. I THOUGHT I WAS HAVING AN ALLERGIC REACTION BECAUSE I STARTED PUTTING SOME DEODORANT POWEDER UNDER MY BOOBS BECAUSE THEY ARE HUGE AND GET SWEATY. BUT IVE ALWAYS DONE IT BEFORE I GOT PREGNANT. NO PROBLEM. IT STARTED OF JUST BEING ITCHY. AND THEN UNDERNEATH MY BOOBS HAD A FEW BUMPS.I THOUGHT IT WAS LIKE A FLEA BITES OR SOMETHING BUT NO ANIMALES IN THE HOUSE. SO THE ITCHING INTENSED AND MY DR WOULDNT GIVE ME ANY ANTIBIOTICS BECAUSE IM PREGNANT. HE GAVE ME SOME YEAST INFECTION MEDICINE AND ITCH CREME TO CLEAR IT. I HAVNT USED ANY NEW CREAMS,LOTIONS,DETERGENT, OR WHAT NOT. MY BOOBS FOR THE LONGEST JUST BEEN SO UNBEARABLY ITCHY. THE BUMPS WENT AWAY UNDERNEATH AND IS CLEARING UP . VERY SLOWLY BUT SURELY. MY BOOBS ARE STILL SUPER ITCHY AND REALLY DRY WHERE I WOULD SCRATCH. IVE USED EVERY DIAPER CREME IN THE WORLD ALONG WITH EVERYTHING NATURAL. IM NOT SURE IF FROM SCRATCHING I SPREAD THE RASH? BECAUSE BETWEEN MY BOOBS LIKE ON THE CHEST BONE THERE IS LITTLE RED BUMPS THERE. THE SAME ONES I HAD JUST FINALLY GOTTON RID OF. AND THEY ITCH LIKE HELL. YOU CANT FEEL THEM UNLESS IM REALLY GOING AT IT ON ITCHING THEM AND THEY RAISE. IT GETS WORSE. NOW IM ITCHY ALL OVER MY BODY. MY BACK,LEGS,STOMACH,ARMS. LITTLE BUMPS SHOWED UP ABOUT A WEEK AGO. MY DOCTOR RULLED OUT CHICKEN POX BUT THINKS I HAD AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO SOMETHING. AND GAVE ME MORE CREMES. WHAT IS GOING ON AND WHAT CAN I DO?!
SO MY DR THINKS I NOW HAVE AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO SOMETHING I ATE WHICH WILL BE IMPOSSIABLE TO PUT AN EXACT FINGER ON BC IM PREGNANT AND I EAT ABOUT ANYTHING THATS EDIABLE. OR NEW LOTIONS OR DETERGENT. BUT I HAVENT DONE ANYTHING NEW. THIS IS REALLY GETTING OUT OF HAND! I DONT WANT THIS TO LAST MY WHOLE PREGNANCY BECAUSE IM SO MISERABLE. MY BOOBS RIGHT AS THEY WERE HEALING , NOW I BREAK OUT IN THESE SO CALLED HIVES? I WONDER HOW LONG THIS WILL LAST. GRRR. SO FRUSTRATING. AND MY DOCTOR IS NO BETTER. IM NOT RUNNING A FEVER, I HAVNT DONE ANYTHING NEW. AND I DONT USE PERFUME LOTIONS AND SOAPS. I HAVNT FOR AWHILE JUST SO I DONT IRRATATE MY SKIN AND MAKE ME ITCH LIKE A MAD WOMEN. CAN ANYONE HELP ME? ! I HAVE USED EVERY RASH CREME KNOWN TO MAN. EXCEPT THE HARSH STUFF THAT WILL HURT BABY. CANT TOUCH THOSE. I USE THE AVEENO OATMEAL BAR OF SOAP SO ITS ALL NATURAL AND WONT IRRATE MY SKIN. POWDERS AND COLD WATER. ETC ETC. I EVEN BEACHED MY PREGNANT SELF OUTSIDE TOPLESS TO GET SOME SUN TO GET SOME VITAMINS FROM IT. AND FRESH AIR. I CANT WEAR A BRA WITHOUT IT IRRATATING. SO MY HUGE OL JUGS ARE JUST HANGIN LOW. WITH NO WHERE ELSE TO GO. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. I HOPE THIS BOOB AND BODY RASH CLEAR UP BECAUSE I WANT TO NURSE MY SON WHEN HE IS BORN. BUT I DONT WANT TO HAVE TO PUT A BOOB IN HIS MOUTH THAT LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF X FILES..OKAY ITS NOT SO BAD. BUT THIS BODY RASH?! ITS NOT RED. JUST GETS RED WHEN I SCRATCH. IT LOOKS LIKE I GOT BIT BY A TON OF LITTLE BUGS? BUT IM SUCH A CLEAN NUT. I WASH MY SHEETS AND SHOWER. DR RULED OUT BED BUGS TOO. CAN ANYONE HELP ME..OR GIVE ME ADVICE ON HOW TO GET RID OF THIS SOMEWHAT NATURALLY? DOES ANYONE KNOW A SECRET POTION I CAN TAKE? OR HERBAL STUFF. OR HAS ANYONE GONE THRU WHAT IM GOING THRU AND HOW DID YOU SURVIVE THIS?!
OH WOW! SERIOUS?! OH NOOOO! NOT TILL AFTER I DELIVER?! THANKS FOR THE ADVICE!! I WILL FOR SURE LOOK IT UP ONLINE. RUBBING ALCOHOL?? HMM.. SOUNDS VERY TEMPTING.. PAINFUL BUT I RATHER FEEL LIKE A BURN THAN ITCH!! IM READY TO TRY ANYTHING THO AT THIS POINT. IM SO MISERABLE. =(
Yeah, it sounds like PUPPs. I had it with my first pg, and it SUCKS!!! It's more uncommon to get it as early as you have, and I'm so sorry because RockRose is exactly right - the only cure is delivering the baby. It goes away within about 1 week after delivery.
There is nothing you can do to get rid of it. I'm sorry! You can only work to soothe it. Use as much lotion as you want. Lotion, lotion, lotion. This will help for when you do have to itch that you don't itch yourself raw.
I had the bumps on my stomach below my belly button, on my wrists, and on my ankles. I got it around 36 weeks.
