Has anyone ever had any kind of rash on the belly? I have small red bumps on the top of my belly. Any advice?

hi, me too! I had my obs appointment yesterday (am 33+3) & showed them my belly rash - they reassured me its normal, a side effect of pregnancy hormones that happens to some of us. the skin on your tummy becomes extra sensitive apparently and sometimes breaks out in itchy rashes or becomes allergic to creams it wasn't before. sometimes the itching is a stretchmark precurser so use plenty of stretchmark oils or creams! ouch ouch I'm covered in red angry bumps both sides of my belly that itch like hellfire since last week, have just put calomine lotion on which seems to help temporarily.

Me, too... itchy, itchy belly (I'm 35+5).

I've been itching on my hands, neck, eyes and face, too, so had blood taken yesterday to make sure it's nothing serious.
