Question

skin eruptions and new pregnancy?

A close friend of mine came out in adult acne a few weeks ago, with the onset of this acne, she started itching terribly several times a day, wherever she scratched she came out in welts. She went to a dermatologist who prescribed an antibiotic cream.
She found out today that she is pregnant and is thrilled, the estimated age of the pregnancy is 4-5 weeks. Could the skin eruptions and acne have any thing to do with her hormones on being pregnant?
If so, why?
