  • Happened to me last month on my vacation in Florida. Never happened to me before then but when i asked my gyno about it she said that during pregnancy your skin is a lot more sensitive than it is normally. even with sunblock and powders it didnt stop till I got home. Had a nasty rash all over my chest and arms :(

  • It's normal, it's a pregnancy rash. A lot of women get that in the third trimester. I had it for a while and now I'm getting dry, red blotches on my face that burn like crazy. Your skin can change so much during pregnancy. Try putting a lot of lotion on it and take some benedryl, that's what my OB suggested when I had that and it went away within a week.

  • Google PUPPS and see if your symptoms match up. It may just be regular pregnancy rash or it may be PUPPS, which comes with some risks. Contact your caregiver.
