I am seven months pregnant and have itchy red bumps on my abdomen. Is this related to my pregnancy or just a coincidence?

I am seven months pregnant and have itchy red bumps on my abdomen. Is this related to my pregnancy or just a coincidence?

They can join to form larger itchy plaques. Puppp usually occurs around 35 weeks but can start earlier. Treatment is usually aimed at the symptoms.

Have small painful and itchy red bumps starting in middle of my spine. Nauseous, chills, night sweats. Bumps starting to go towards right side of back?

I suggest you visit an urgent care center, your PCP, or if high fever or vomiting, perhaps the ER. Night sweats, chills, and nausea alone indicate an infection such as influenza or even tuberculosis. Please seek help ASAP. ...Read more
