Has anyone had this? I woke up this morning covered in red spots. Some are raised and itchy, some don't appear to be itching...yet. They are everywhere, hands, arms, legs, tummy, chest, neck and face. I am 11+5 with second pregnancy. I googled pregnancy skin conditions as from experience weird and wonderful things happen to you when pregnant and the above condition came up. Just wondered if anyone had it and if so, did it start as red spots and progress, pictures on google look horrific and not quite the same...but they look in later stages. Aaargh! Pregnancy sucks! (Ps. I have eczema: this doesn't look like eczema. I can rule out allergy to detergent as been using it for ages, also bugs as DD slept with me and is untouched plus there are hundreds of the little spots and don't look like my usual reaction to bites).
I get something like what you're describing. They start off as red pin pricks and get bigger and bigger and sort of merge together. I get them on lower legs and forearms. When they eventually disappear after a couple of weeks they leave my skin a bit blue/grey ish for a while.
I'm not pregnant, but do have kids.
This has only started happening in the last few years though. GP not particularly interested as it's annoying rather than serous.
