Has anybody else gotten a rash on their stomachs? I have had one since Sat and it is SO ITCHY!!!! I have not made any body wash or lotion changes so I did a little research online and they said it is actually pretty common because of hormone changes..... Please tell me I' am not the only one with this issue?! lol

I haven't had any rash, but my skin has definitely been itchy lately...especially on my stomach.

I've heard of some women developing rashes, typically with boy pregnancies. If it doesn't go away, show your OB/midwife at your next appointment.

I had a rash on my stomach a little over a month or so ago and it turned out to be shingles! I would go get it checked out by your OB just to find otu for sure what is causing it.

I have chronic hives, plus the added itch of super dry skin. I really sympathize with you

I have had one for a few months. I kept forgetting to ask my Dr about it until last week. Mine was just clusters of little red ugly bumps everywhere. She said use cortizone or benadryl cream. The cortizone has cleared it right up!!

There is a condition called pupps, I'm not sure if that's what you have but I know it's something to be discussed with your provider. My skin is really itchy but I don't have a rash.

I talked to the OB nurse yesterday and she said it is most likely PUPPS :/ and to try cortizone cream and benedryl and if that doesnt help to call back and make an appt.

Thanks for all the tips ladies!

Just an FYI cortisone , I would double check with your doctor. I have psoriasis and had pupps last time with my son. It's not recommended until 3rd trimester to use cortisone (or other steroids) unless the risk outweighs of course! But maybe try some other anti itch or something if its not too bad! My baking soda paste was an awesome trick! Just want you to be informed!!
