Rash on my legs

I have this really red rash on my legs...all over!

On my right: above knee around thigh, outer upper thigh, inner upper thigh, outer calf

On left: right part near kneecap, and upper inner thigh.

Below, a picture of what it looks like above my right kneecap...sorry bout my ugly leg.

The rash is slightly raised and hurts a lot. I wore pants I've worn a hundred times before today. A few days ago, I got a massage with a lotion, but that didn't touch my upper leg and I had it all over my back and arms too with no reaction.

Any help would be appreciated. Calling doctor tomorrow.

I can't remember if you are past your first trimester or not, but if you are you can use allergy anti-itch cream to help take down the inflammation. If you are still in your first trimester, or prefer a natural method, use witchhazel which is an astringent and anti-inflammatory.

I'm 20 weeks. I'll have to run to the store. I'm desperate. I've never had a reaction to anything before!

Idk what that is but my mom had it 4yrs ago when she was prego with my sister. She was really itchy and the dr gave her a cream for it but it was still red.
