I am hoping to pick your brains about this one...
I am 30 weeks pregnant and in the last week or so I have developed a dry, itchy, painful red rash on my lower tummy, hips, outer thighs and down my legs.
Sometimes it feels prickly like a heat rash and hot water in the shower aggrivates it too. It is quite painful at the sides of my tummy and on my hip area (I guess this is where the skin is most tight).
I have tried applying sorbelene cream to the area to soothe it, but this actually stings the rash. I am at a loss as to what is causing this? Any ideas?
In my first pregnancy I got dry itchy skin and my doctor did a blood test to check my liver function, but it came back all clear. This time round it is much, much worse.
Wondering if I am over reacting or should head back to the doctor?
All ideas, suggestions, thoughts welcome and appreciated.
