Please help im pregnant and have ichy scalp and bad rash on neck and back of neck how can I get rid of this?

See a provider: I think its important to see a dermatologist if the rash is spreading and not going away. There are several things that this could be but most likely per description it sounds like contact dermatitis. I would stop wearing all perfumes and scented lotions. You may try topical Hydrocortisone over the counter, but please see your pcp or a dermatologist for an evaluation. ...Read more

Hair removal: This is a personal decision based on your preferences and those of your partner if you have one. Laser hair removal and electrolysis are both good choices. This won't be painless, but I bet you're super-tough and can take it like the grown man that you are now. I hope you get what you want. ...Read more
