its your hormones,your body is going through so much change and so are your hormones during pregnancy.
Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Congratulations too!!
There are some rashes associated with pregnancy like Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP), Prurigo of pregnancy, Pruritic folliculitis of pregnancy, and Pemphigoid gestationis. PUPPP is the most common, however it is seen more on stretch marks and during the third trimester. If you have gained a lot of weight during your pregnancy then this is a possibility. Prurigo of pregnancy is due to abnormal hormone levels, will disappear on delivery and reappear on subsequent pregnancy. These conditions are harmless both for mother and baby. Steroid creams & ointments, moisturizing creams, aloe vera lotions, wet soaks, calamine lotions are usually enough to control both. Pemphigoid gestationis is an autoimmune rash, disappears with end of pregnancy, may flare up just before delivery, and can affect the baby. This needs to be diagnosed early for proper care during pregnancy.
Please discuss this with a dermatologist and your gynecologist.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
