Rash on tummy

I am 29 weeks and have come out in a rash on my tummy. It started off last week actually but I thought it was just dry skin but now it has spread all over my tummy and I can see it is slightly raised. It is a bit itchy.

Anyone else had this? Any ideas? Will I be ok to wait until my Dr's surgery is open to get it checked out?

Thanks for your reply. I can't get the link to work, takes me to an error page. Not sure what pep or pupp means.

Sorry - google them - its an itch / rash that appears and is often helped with prescription creams etc

It might be PUPP, I had this. It's not nice and can get really, really itchy. Google it, print out the info and then see your GP or midwife (neither of mine had heard of it). I got steroid cream and it cleared up.
