I am 21 weeks pregnant and ever since the pregnancy , i have this annoying rash on my inner thighs near the groin , i also simultaneously have what i think to be Athletes foot or a very itchy fungal rash only on my left foot. I don' t use nylon underwear and i keep myself dry as possible - this is the first time i ever have something like this and its very itchy and embarassing. What topical treatment can u recommend that will be safe during pregnancy?

It is probably best to see a dermatologist and have a proper diagnosis. It could be fungal or eczema and the treatments are differnt.

Try Anethaine. It is a local anaesthetec cream, and I used during my whole pregnancy. Takes away the itch immediately!
