I have a spreading little rash on my wrist, now it appears on the other hand and wrist. I think it oozes liquid at times, and it aches in the morning. Does anyone have any idea what it might be? at first i thought it was exima, I never do drugs and dont live in a building of people that do them. and i have lived here since september,

No idea. You should see a doctor if it is oozing and spreading.

how long have you had it? chickenpox will begin as a rash then turn into very obvious blisters/pocks. eczema is a rash, it doesnt turn into pocks. 

do you know if you have had chickenpox as a child? if so, it could be shingles due to your compromised immune system [pregnancy] and other factors. if it is shingles, there is no harm to your baby. 

if you have not had chickenpox, and this is chickenpox, there is a small risk to the baby depending on where you are in your pregnancy. 


call your nurse-line and start doing some research online.

call your doctor first thing in the morning and make an "emergency appointment" to determine what it is before it gets worse.

and contact your parents to figure out if youve ever had chickenpox.

Chicken pox will start on the chest not wrists only. It sounds like you have contact dermatitis where something you have touched is making you break out.
New perfume, new watch, new hand soap, etc?

 lol, okay, um thank you for the concern. I know some rashes are serious, but i dont know about this one. both my parents are resting in their graves, (or turning over bc of obamacare) lol, some things i take more seriously are loss of fluid and major cramping or lack of fetal movement, but a rash? hmm, i will call and find out, it does bother me so.
