I broke out in an itchy rash

Hi Alex,
Im nearly 6 weeks pregnant and yesterday i broke out in an itchy rash that starts from my chest, over my belly and the top of my thighs. It looks like a heat rash but I am keeping nice and cool with the aircon during the day and also at night. Its really itchy and if you scratch it, gets even itchier, any ideas?
Thankyou
Helen

Answer: Hi Helen, You may have a form of dermatitis and it needs to be treated. Please visit your GP for a diagnosis and treatment. Best wishes, Alex
