She is 37 wks pregnant and she all of sudden got a rash on her belly.  And she says it itches really bad.  Does anyone know what it is and have they had it before while pregnant.  She hasn't used,ate or been around anything new.

i dont know the name of it but that is common with some women. tell her not to scratch it or mess with it. she needs to go to her doctors and get some medical cream for it.

I had a rash on my tummy and it was itchy I would suggest her talk to her dr about it but mine told me it happens sometimes and I could use cortizone (sp.) cream to help with the itching.
