In brief: Impetigo pregnancy

I hope your pregnant friend is going regularly for her prenatal care and taking prenatal vitamins.
Now you say she has impetigo on her belly button, she needs to use locl antibiotic cream like bactroban (mupirocin) which is prescription or over the counter bacitracin, for her cold and rash which you describe prickly heat, and for her impetigo she needs to see her doctor and get proper treatment.
