I got a rash at the beginning of my pregnancy with my son and they just told me cortizone cream which seemed to relieve it.

I got it with my son. It was awful!! What I did took care of it, but I used herbs so they haven't been evaluated for saftey during pregnancy, but my baby was healthy so...it is up to you. I took dandelion root capsules from the health food store (it's a liver detoxer). I took 3 pills a day. I also washed with pine tar soap (again, health food store) and used topical benedryl anti-itch cream. I got mine in the 2nd trimester. It took about a month for it to clear up completely, but then it was all gone as long as I kept up with the dandelion root.

I hope you feel better soon!!

I got it bad! With both pregnancies! Worse with my daughter. My Dr. had to give me a prescription cream, until you can get in to see your Dr. I would try a cortizone cream, good luck!
