Just wondering if any of you have ever had this/heard if this!
I'm 23 weeks pregnant and I have gastric flu right now so either of those might be relevent (bleeeugh)
I woke up this morning with what looked like massive nettle stings over the top half of one leg and over half of my face... they were about an inch wide and circularish and very raised with bright pink edges, they faded about half an hour after I got up though and are now just itchy flat red patches... but since then I've discovered a new one on my other leg which is huuge, it's just beginning to fade... and a few on the side of my waist....what on earth is it?! [confused emoticon!]
are they hellish itchy? Sounds like hives (think urticarea or something is proper word ... look on lanacane tube!) whihc are an allergic reaction. I get them a lot this time of year associated with hayfever, but on occasion have got them out of the blue. Very unpleasant, poor you - antihystamines work but not sure about them during pg. Camomile lotion, lanacane cream, bicarb soda in bath... but you don't mention their itchiness so perhaps they're not bothering you too much?
Haven't changed it... suppose I could have suddenly become allergic..lol I'm turning into my DH 'mr allergy man'
erm could it affect.. down there at all... which has been doing strange things recently... it's been strangely puffy and the skin seems paper thin as soon as my clothes rub against there the skin sort of cracks open...
I think any mucous membranes will be affected particularly, certainly I have found that, though mine was mainly in face. poor you, really, you have my sympathy! Cold bath, cold bath, cold bath. But don't rub dry afterwards! It will pass soon.
