Went to my ob appt today, now I have high blood pressure so he made me another appt next Tuesday the 14th and they're hopefully taking me out of work, I asked my job to cover my hours this weeks also because I am soooooo uncomfortable. the ob referred me to a dermatologist 45 minutes away , so then I had to drive there and my rash is either an allergic reaction like I said to the palmers cocoa butter or it is puppps. He said if he did a biopsy they're so close that it could say its a reaction and still be puppps either way he gave me an ointment with steroids in it , I can use once a day, for two weeks. I'm not allowed to use lotions, only petroleum jelly, I can't use body wash only dove bar soap and I can only take short warm showers. I also have to sleep with a humidifier and wear loose clothes .... This trimester is kicking my ***, it itches sooooo bad =( I'm still taking Benadryl as well hoping it will help, but I even wake up in the middle of the night scratching

Take care of yourself. Just a few additional weeks for a full term healthy child.

I'm not sure what it was, he just told me it was high. And Teresa, I just hope they take me out of work, I can't work anyway, Im covered in this nasty *** rash lol and I'm not going to attempt to help customers while wanting to scratch my skin off, I have to go for a lab this afternoon to get my liver function and bile salts checked.

That sounds awful! Hope your BP stays in check and the ointment helps with the rash and it really is just a simple reaction!
