    Hi Mythili

    Congradulations first of all for your pregnancy!!!!!!!!!

    Dont panic
    I guess its becoz of u r pregnant.My frnd faced similar skin problems, rashes tat are itchy and painful but after her delivery.When consulted her doctor,she said tat it can happen to few ladies either before delivery or after delivery or maybe both.She was given some medicine but she did have the rashes.After few months it went away by itself.
    So i believe there is nothin to panic..please ask your Gyna's advise
    Dont worry dear, u ll become fine soon

    Because your skin stretches itchy skin is very common during pregnancy.
    If you get a rash it is called PUPPP.
    Check out this link
    Itchy skin during pregnancy | BabyCenter

    If the rash is severe and very itchy, I would suggest consult your gynic immediately. You don't want to start scratching all your body and end up with lots of stretch marks!! They will give you a topical ointment to help you relieve from itching.

    Hope you find some relief soon.

    Tina,

    Your rash could be PUPPP. Please check with your gynic ASAP. She will give you medicine.
