  • is it at the line where your underwear starts or ends? if so you might be having a reaction to the elastic thats made into them...

  • Stop scratching! Your'e going to get strech marks! It's called PUPPP.

    Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP), also known as polymorphic eruption of pregnancy, is the most common rash in pregnant women. It normally occurs in first pregnancies during the third trimester with an average onset of 35 weeks. Thankfully, PUPPP does not usually affect subsequent pregnancies.

    Appearance of PUPPP
    The rash of PUPPP almost always begins in the stretch marks (striae) of the abdomen.

  • Manaada is right. You can talk with your dr about anti itch medication.

  • I had several types of rashes while I was pregnant and all were allergic reactions to products I was using. But these rashes lasted a few days, so it's not the same thing. My midwife said I could use cortizone, but only maybe twice a week.
