Bumping this thread for you - any midwives, GPs, doulas out there with advice?

it sounds like what i had at 27 weeks. docs said it was heat rash or alergic reaction to something. baby perfectly safe, was given alergy tablets and anti-itch cream. lasted a week!! not nice, so itchy i couldnt go to work! i would check with doctors at first chance u get just to make sure tho.

all the best

do you have any temperature? Has the rash spread from one insect bite and is the skin hot to touch?

hey thanks all for your advise and concern i didnt get to read it before my partner took me to A & E they gave me a injection in my bum blush they think its just an allergic reaction they said to go back if it gets worse and i get breathing problems its still really itchy and spreading but i dont think it is anything serious. many thanks again
