worried!!!!!!! please help if you can!

I started getting a rash last friday they were small red bumps near my left ankle and as days progressed they have spread to my other leg and arms. And not only that the bumps have gotten even more wide spread and bigger especially on my left leg. Any way im also 37 weeks preggo so i am worried about the baby being affected cause i have talked to two dr's so far and they seem puzzled so i don't know what to do.

  • I would try topical benadryl and see if that helps. Think if you have eaten anything different lately or gotten into something that you are allergic to.

  • Some women develop rashes at the end because of hormones or it could be hives from stress. The baby will be fine, its protected from everything right now. Try not to touch it or scratch it and sit in a warm bath.

  • if its pupp (which it may not be) eating healthy could help, but that will help anyways. try cutting out sugar, add more protein, some leafy greens etc. stay away from harsh soaps.

  • were you in grassy area? does it itch and is it warm to the touch? maybe a tick bite? get checked for lyme disease, if you were out hiking or in the park.
