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.

Well dry skin should not be spreading.  You need to go back into the doctor or call the nurse and let them know it's gotten worse.  You may be having a skin allergy to something.  I developed severe allergies to poison ivy when I was pregnant with my first.  It was more severe than a normal reaction and I had to be put on special meds.  I would call today and ask to come in and get checked out again. 
deff call ur doc again..if its itchy and spreading it u may have to much salt in ur body..ur liver may not be functioning right..take benadryl for allergies and if it doesnt  help then call a doc. it may be somethingh severe like ur liver
I am a bigger girl and I get a similar rash in similar places. :) It may be a yeast infection. I get those sometimes. An easy way to check is to smear some plain yogurt with active cultures on it and see if it helps. I know it sounds gross, but it really works.
