Ok, I just noticed my arms were itchy and the inside of both of my forearms is covered with an ugly red rash! Yikes, weird, anyone else ever had this? I have had a lot weird skin things over the years but never this. I suspect it's pregnancy related. I am afraid it will be all all over me when I wake up, oy! It looks kind of like chicken pox but the bumps are smaller & closer together.
I have no idea! I assume you would know it if was poison ivy or something similar?
I hope it clears up for you soon.
Yes! I have been itching like crazy on my arms, and I've noticed a few small bumps. Nothing major, but I feel weird scratching all day.
did you ever find out what this was? i just woke up with the same thing! so weird...
Hi, I never did....the nurse at the midwife's office I spoke with thought it probably was pregnancy-related but it didn't seem like any more of the serious rashes that can happen in pregnancy. She recommend oatmeal baths for the itching, which did help a bit. I think it faded after about 7-14 days....It has not recurred. Feel better soon!
Thanks! I'm glad it didn't get any worse for you, that's what i was afraid of. i saw my midwife yesterday and she didn't think it was pupps either.
