leelee, i'm nearly 16 weeks pregnant, and yesterday..a rash started developing below my chin. it then spread downwards of my neck and upwards to my face just around my mouth area. it is soooo itchy!!!! after scratchng myself senseless and trying cocoa butter (don't use cocoa butter, cos it made it worse..and was what started the spreading), i tried anti-septic cream which seemed to calm it a little. i then went to the pharmacy, the pharmacist was bewilded with the rash, saying it is not serious as it's just on the skin surface..but she couldn't figure out how i got it until i told her i was pregnant..and then she started to laugh. saying it's my pregnancy hormones! apparently, it's a common symptom! she then prescribed me dermaid (for sensitive skin). it's a steroid cream, but extremely gentle. she said i cannot use normal steroid cream, as i am pregnant. hope that helps (i don't know the date you posted your message). and if anyone has the same problem, hope this helps you too. cheers!

i am in the final week of my pregnancy and have severe itchy skin mainly on my arms and upper chest areas. the itchyness started about 4 months ago. all my tests have come back clear so its not any kind of liver disorder or anything like that. the more i itch the worse it gets. i've tried just about everything imaginable from calamine lotion to cold baths,anti itch creams, lotions etc... nothing works. does anyone know of any thing that could ease this itch, its driving me nuts. also my feet, ankles and legs are so swollen and even when i elevate them for hours the swelling is still there. i have two other children and didn't have these problems. why this time?

perioral dermititis can be helped by using tooth paste without flouride. you may purchase it at most natural health stores. but my main suggestion to anyone that has posted on here is to go see your dermitoligist. just b/c you are pregnant doesn't mean you only need to see the obgyn- i had perioral dermititis and went to the dermitoligist- that's the only way to go!

i am not pregnant anymore. however, while i was pregnant with my 2nd child i developed a rash on my face. it started around the lower part of my mouth and progressed around the top of my mouth and on my cheeks. my doctor couldin't prescribe anything at the time, due to my pregnancy. know my 2nd baby is 3 years old now and i still have the problem, it has since been diagnosed as perorial dermatitis. i have been given in the past steroid creams, anibiotics however, everything they give me doesn't seem to work, can anyone help, or tell me of a specialist in the bay area. my face is on fire and it feels like it is going to rip when i smile or eat. help me

i had the rash on my tummy that was like flea bites too, especially on the soft or stretchmarked areas. luckily on my second pregnancy i haven't had any but i remember my mum made me up a mixture of bi carb soda and water to dab on it, it was really soothing, also i found wiping the skin over with a hot cloth between applications was much better than a warm one.

i am 24 weeks. last week i started getting really itchy on my lower stomach and under breast area. i wasn't really concerned until i started getting little mosquito bite looking bumps all over those areas. then when i was outside the next day sweating, it got out of control. soooo itchy and spread up my chest and neck. i immediately called my doctor. he said it sounded like i had pupps. it's literally a really itchy rash that pregant woman get. it's not fatal or serious for mother or baby, so there's not alot of research. they think it's caused by an allergic reaction to the amniotic fluid. it generally lasts till after you deliver. unfortunately there's not alot we can do about it. aveno baths, witch hazel, i can take 1 claritin in the morning and benedryl up to 2 times per day for severe itchiness. i usually take benedryl right before bedtime to help me sleep. but basically i'm dreading the next 4 months. if you've had this and know of anything else that helps, let me know.

here is some useful info i found on the web. i have also used cold water and it seems to bring some releif. research it more. it sounds like all you are getting this. i am 39 weeeks pregnant with my second child and am having the extremely itchy itch. i have had it for about a month and it just keeps getting worst. benedryl will help you get sleep and a cold shower before bed. look at the info on pupps below: pupp it's a cute name for a not-so-cute condition. pupp (pruritic urticarial papules and plaques) describes itchy, red, raised patches on the skin. you might notice them first on your stomach. and they may spread to your arms and legs. this condition runs in the family, and usually happens only in first pregnancies. if you experience it, talk to your doctor about oral medications and anti-itch creams that might help. oatmeal and baking soda in the bath can give you some relief. the symptoms do go away after pregnancy.
