WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH MY BOOBS!

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?!

It's called PUPPP,  and the sad news is,  it's not going to get better before you deliver,  probably.  

I have worked with pregnant teens,  and have seen this twice.   One of the girls actually got rubbing alcohol to put on her scratched up itchy skin,  so at least it would burn and not itch.

You may want to search it out on the internet,  and tell your doctor what it is.  ;D  It's kind of weird that a doc doesn't know this is fairly common in pregnancy.

Best wishes.

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.
