    I keep getting rashes periodically appear at various places around my tummy. They come and go and appear in no one particular place on my tummy. They sometimes itch a bit and seem to go of their own accord, after only a few hours sometimes. Anyone else experienced this? I'm seeing my midwife on Weds so will ask her about this.

    Could it be heat rash or exma??? .... or have you changed your washing powder recently???

    I've been told to use non-bio washing powder since i've been pregnant ... apparently your skin is extreamly sensitive :)

    Hiya Moo,

    I found this website about rashes -

    http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/womenshealth ... gnancy.htm

    Hopefully it'll have some answers for you but def. ask your midwife about it just incase its something nasty.

    Nicki.x :D

    (p.s where abouts in Sussex are you? if you don't mind me asking)

    I developed a rash at about 12 weeks... just red marks [not itchy] on abdomen, boobs and a few on tops of thighs... m/w just said hormonal changes can cause them etc but now having read that article I am very concerned!

    Don't think I have changed any lotions / soaps etc - seeing m/w and obstetrician next week so will make sure they take a proper look and hopefully give me some proper advice :cry:

    So many things to worry about.. I just thought it was hormonal.. could be quite serious if one of those listed on that link... :? :?
