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?

Maybe!: This could be a contact allergy, a folliculitis (infection around hair follicles), or puppp. Puppp is a pregnancy related condition where itchy red bumps start in the stretch marks. 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. None of those conditions are dangerous. ...Read more

Maybe not, but...: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a withdrawal period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

What? Extremely  itchy rash on thighs, stomach, wrists -perfectly round papules (clear fluid), early menses with dark brown flow, and huge purple zit.

It is important to : Seperate these phenomen. The period is not related to rash onset. The papules could be a few things but if itching like crazy, at night, u may have a skin mite, bed bugs or something requiring permetharin cream. The zit is likely coincidental and, if your periods are bad then itching all over and having a zit will put u into disaster mode. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Hydrocortisone cream, get into doc. ...Read more
