rash

I'm 25w2d and I have had the rash for a month I've been to my ob twice my primary 3 times a walk in clinic once and the er twice. It's nothing like an allergic reaction and it's not infections or harming me or the baby just annoying the poo out of me. It's a type of dermatitis due to me having super dry sensitive skin and being pregnant so it's basically a pregnancy related/caused dermatitis.. it seems to some what come and go through out the day and a lot of the stuff they have given me or suggested doesn't help other than the oatmeal bath and lotion and calamine lotion. Does anyone else have this or have had it??? I feel alone. It's on my arms and legs mainly right now but it's been on my neck a little my chest and stomach as well but now it's just arms and legs and when it does itch it's super bad like I can't stop itching it. I feel alone anyone else have this or been through it what worked for you??? Please help

I havent had this issue but theres a product for babies called Aveeno exczema skin therapy lotion. That might help you a lot. Theres a soap also just like it. Walmart sells it. Try switching ur soap and lotion up.

If its not in the baby section, go look in the regular soap isle for adults, they usually have it there with additional baby soaps....and no problem.

I was getting really bad rashes and dry skin and I switched my soap and started using baby soap. It worked for me. That and not using any perfumes. Hope it gets better!

CeraVe is AMAZING!
My son had a small spot of dry skin on his back, I used it twice on there and the spot was completely gone. I got it from Target for abt 10 dollars. It's a little more than regular lotion, but it's TOTALLY worth it!

I went through that my first 3 months of pregnancy, I used the gold bond lotion the one with the green bottle I would use it twice a day. It really helps just give it a try.
