2 Bumps

Weird skin rash

I'm 26 weeks pregnant and I've been getting these little blister looking things all over my hands, fingers, neck, face and ears!

They are skin colored bumps and if I scratch too hard they spread and ooze a little. When they spread they get severely inflamed and much larger. I thought they were bug bites but there are so many and they vary so much in size and shape. Some itch and some don't but I'm noticing that a new one will pop up, not itch at all and then a few days later it will start itching. I have developed them on my neck and ears and they are soooo itchy and look almost like huge welts with bunches of little blisters together.

Any ideas?

  • Chicken pox?

    You should call your Dr. and describe them to a medical professional.

  • Sounds like contact dermatitis. You need to see your doctor for diagnosis and then determine what is breaking you out

  • It's sunday. No doctors offices are open. This isn't an emergency...just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas.

    I've already had chicken pox

  • No new soaps or lotions. But last friday I did pull weeds with my bare hands. This started popping up on monday and has just continued to get worse. Some of it looks like it could be poison ivy but other parts don't look like poison ivy at all.

  • If you could get to WalMart or Target and buy some Fels Naptha soap that will remove the oil once and for all, if poison ivy or poison oak is what it is. Try not to scratch because that will cause it to spread. Regular soap won't remove all the oil

  • When in doubt, ask a doctor.
