I am 3 months pregnant. two days ago I got a few bumps that look like ant bites. they are very itchy. I have no ants no fleas no bugs that i can find. I haven't changed anything that i do. but every night the number of bumps multiplys. Has this happened to anyone else and/or does anyone have any suggestions?

  • I've been getting rashes on my hands and feet lately that I have no idea what caused them, but my midwife recommended using benadryl cream or hydrocortisone cream to help relieve the itching. Both are safe to use. I've also tried aveeno skin relief lotion with cooling menthol, it seems to help as well. A lot of pregnancy rashes are just hormone related, the more well known ones (like PUPPP) come a lot later in pregnancy so you probably don't have that. Oh, and oatmeal baths are fabulous to help relieve the itching too! I feel your pain!

  • Don't itch them, and go to the doctor, it might be scabies.
