LeeAnn - November 16

My husband first noticed it, but he has lots of red itchy spots on his back....went to the DR and they said it looks like chicken pox, because he never had a serious case of them. Me, I have scars from having them, but I don't understand why I have these on my legs. I am 35 weeks pregnant, also! Any idea? Mine are itchy to, but it seems to start out as no spot, just an itchy area and later "pops" up as a spot! Please help! (asking in two places for more replies!

i have itchy red spots on my belly and also on my legs. i googled this a while ago and it said: About 1 percent of women develop itchy, red bumps and larger patches of a hive-like rash on their bellies in the second half of pregnancy, usually in the last month or two. These irritations are called pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP for short) or polymorphic eruption of pregnancy. They usually show up first on the abdomen around or in stretch marks (if you have any) and then spread to the thighs, the b___tocks, and sometimes the arms. They're harmless for you and your baby, but they can itch like crazy!
