non itchy red blotches
CramerPong posted:
I am13 weeks pregnant today (2/22). I have recently noticed some red raised blotches under my breasts and spread sporaticly around my abdomen and belly. There are two that are slightly larger (about the size of a dime). They do not itch, but are slightly raised and red. They feel dry, but lotion does not seem to help. I have a scheduled dr's appointment in a week and a half, and I was just wondering if I should contact her and get in sooner.

You should call and ask to discuss this with an available nurse, she should be able to speak with you and possibly get you checked out by a DR. sooner than you scheduled appointment if necessary.

I have some red blotches on my thighes and I had some smaller ones on my hands. When I asked my OBGYN about it, she told me that it was a form of excema (sp?). She said that it's very common for it to show up in pregnancy even if you've never had it before. She said it happens a lot in the winter because your skin is already really dry. She told me to use Cortizone lotion. I have been using it and it seems to help.
