In brief: Creams
Although the rashes may be bothersome, they are not harmful to you or to your baby.
A mild corticosteroid can be applied on the skin. You can take an antihistamine to help with the itching. Oral corticosteroids can be used in severe cases, but is generally not recommended. The rash will generally go away within one week of delivery.
