  • is it dry or sweaty where the rash is? if its dry, use a moisturizer. if its sweaty, use cornstarch or baby powder.
    it could also be pupps:Pruritic Urticarial Papules and Plaques of Pregnancy

    PUPPIt's not uncommon to feel itchy during your pregnancy – this will mostly be felt around your stomach and breasts and is usually caused by your changing hormones and your stretching skin

    If you do suffer from common issues, such as dry skin, eczema or food allergies then these may be made worse over the course of your pregnancy

    Some pregnant women may also experience more intense itchiness during pregnancy. This is often seem in conjunction with itchy, red bumps and larger patches of a hive-like rash on their bellies. This is known as pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP) or polymorphic eruption of pregnancy and will effect about 1% of pregnant women

    got this @ pregnancy-calendars.net

  • It sounds like excema. Stop eating dairy; keep showers quick, cool and infrequents; keep it well moisturized (we use coconut oil)
