  • It sounds like heat bumps, unless you have allergies or have developed allergies to something. I would stop using anything scented for a little while to see if maybe that could be the cause of your irritation good luck

  • It could be prickly heat rash as pregnant women are more prone to that. There is also a rash that pregnant women can develop during pregnancy. It' called PUPPP. I had it and it was not pleasant. The only way to get rid of it is to give birth. As this rash usually starts in the abdomen and spreads, I'm not sure if it is what you have.
