We are still on our get away. Currently at an RV park I took a shower in the RV parks showers since it's been a few days we didn't have hook UPS till now. Anyways since then I've been covered in a rash all over my body that itches and burns like hell! We are going to drop the kids off at my sisters but I don't know if I should go to the ER after that or not....

Yikes! Did it show up all at once? You CAN take benadryl safely. I would definitely see if that helps. Anybody else get anything? I wonder if it was something in the water.

Yikes! Can you call your provider to get her recommendation? So sorry you are suffering!

Since you are camping did you maybe buy a sample size body wash you haven't used before and are possibly allergic? Hopefully it isn't from a bug or plant you rubbed up against. If it doesn't go away you probably should get it checked out. At the least to get a topical creme for relief.

Ouch! Try the benedryl and if that doesn't bring you some relief, call your doc. What a lousy way to start your vacation!

I called my OB office. The on call doctor thinks I'm having a severe reaction to something. Finally made it back to town and hot some Benadryl waiting for it to take effect if it doesn't then I'll be going to the local hospital.

How is the rash now? My first thought was poison ivy or oak, it pops up quick and burns and itches like crazy!!! If it's better, then maybe wait on the ER but definitely get to your dr and let them check it out.

I'm going to call my doctor back. The Benadryl takes the itch away and knocks me out. Starts getting rid of the hives. Once it wears off I'm itchy like hell and the hives are back like they're pissed off. I'm miserable!!! I should be sleeping but the Benadryl has worn off again....

Well, that means that it's definitely an allergic reaction to SOMETHING... too bad you don't know what it is! About the only other thing I think they can do is give you a cortisone shot, but I'm not sure if they'd want to do that with you pregnant. Have you had the chance to get another shower? Like the other poster said, did you use a new shampoo or fabric softener or something that would have caused a skin reaction? Other than that, my guess is that maybe you ate something that your body decided to be allergic to. That could definitely cause a re-occurring full-body rash. I sure hope it's NOT poison ivy, but I wouldn't think that benadryl would be that useful if it was. Feel better soon!

Yikes!! I'd go in and get checked out, for sure. I'm glad the Benadryl gives you a little relief, but I'm like you, it knocks me out forever. Maybe if you go in there will be a pregnancy safe cream you can use?

The last time I got that camping it was from my bug spray. Apparently I developed a severe reaction to deet.

Allergic reactions scare me, so I might head over to a patient first clinic or a hospital or something. Esp since the benedryl isn't doing the job.

I agree with SusieQ - esp. when you are preggers it's better to be safe than sorry!

I'm headed to the hospital. They would have me come into the office if I was home but said go to the hospital and get checked out. I finally got dh awake and told I need to go to the hospital. So he's unhooking us and getting ready to go in.

Oh no!!! Thats awful Im so sorry. Definitely an allergic reaction... I hope you get some relief and am glad you are going to the drs. You may want to try oatmeal baths, if you have an opportunity to get to a bath tub. You can also boil it and put some on your hives. Sounds weird I know, but my friends horse used to get horrible hives. I know you arent a horse, but that always seemed to provide relief for her. She would be covered in hives from nose to hooves.
