Hello mamas,<br>
I've had a light pinkish, itchy rash come and go on my arms for the last week or so. It's not too bad, just annoying. Not sure if I should call the doc and let him know or wait and see if it gets worse. I think it probably is pregnancy related, but not sure.<br>
WWYD?

i wouldn't worry too much. i've been getting random super itchy hives on my hips and behind. they are finally subsiding after weeks of frustration. i find aveeno baths and lotions are really helpful and looser clothing helps. i think rashes and skin issues seems to be normal but annoying. it could be hormone fluctuation, change in weather, stress, sleep stuff.

Yeah maybe bring it up if you are at an appointment but otherwise I'd just stick to soothing your skin as much as you can. Also if you're in a hot climate make sure you're drinking lots of water, staying cool and getting out of sweaty clothing sooner rather than later. Sometimes I am more sensitive to heat and get a bit of a rash that comes and goes.
