Hi Nash

I also had a similar rash when i was pregnant with my 1st baby. only i had it worse. As i continued scratching it the rash would then spread. After birth i got it again but now its usually in the crook of my arm and also in the upper inside knee area. My gynae prescibed 1% cortisone cream and thats about all that we can use during pregnancy. but i would rather forget about being embarassed and speak to the gynae. i am 9 weeks preggies now and i also pray that i dont get it again, but what i have also noticed is it usually comes out when my body is very hot, like in summer, or if you sit in front of a heater or fire. also when you have high temperature. speak to the gynae though bestthing for you and the baby, i am sure the baby will be fine. but take care of u hey.
