How can I treat a pregnancy rash?

My OB sent me to minor care because I have swollen glands and a rash. Well, the NP at minor care said they are unrelated and gave me a prescription for a topical STEROID cream, the idiot. The pharmacist said YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT!!! So, how can I treat this rash? Its on my belly and itches!!!!!

  • Calemine lotion can stop itching on mostly everything. Other than that cortozone is a good anti itch cream as well and shouldn't harm the baby good luck.

  • I find aloe and witch hazel very soothing...though very little does anything for the itching for me...but I'll take soothing and healing over nothing any day.
