Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

a possiblity it could be related to high blood pressure or a condition call pepp. I exoerienced a similar rash at the end of my last pregnancy and it went away after birth. I thimk it is most commonly found on the legs or arms. Ask you r doctor just to be sure and get your blood pressure checked.
I had the same looks like little bug bites almost and it's really itchy. It's completely miserable! I tried a bunch of stuff.....oatmeal bar soap, caladryl lotion, goldbond lotion, hydrocortisone cream....I got relief nowhere. Eventually I went to my OB/GYN and he sent me to a dermatologist. He said it was a skin condition called PUPPP (abbreviation for some long complicated name). He said it's the most common rash brought on by pregnancy and goes away after you deliver. He prescribed me a cream to put on twice a day and it was gone in 2 days! He also said no fabric softener, cool 5 min showers, and to use Lever 2000 cause it's antibacterial. Good luck, I know torturous that condition can be.
