Hi there Alex,
I have developed a rash which started on my tummy about 10 days ago it looked like a heat rash crossed with allergic reaction. After a week it spread to my lower arms and upper legs. Now its just dry skin on my tummy with the rash on my ribs (very slight) but quite bad all the way up my arms and still on my upper legs with areas the tops of my feet.
I went to the doctor and he said that it could be a pregnancy rash - my midwife thinks it PUPPP.. I have been treating it with antihistimines, and various lotions and soaking in teatree oil and oatmeal etc
Is there anything else you can recommend for me to do ?- In addition i have been putting ice packs on my arms to get rid of the heat from the rash and taking panadol.
I am told it will clear up either before or after the birth.
This condition can be quite difficult to treat and it is really just trying to work out what solution is best for you. It sounds as if you are doing everything you can to try to lessen the symptoms.
