Question by chickie27: Does anybody know someone who had a “pregnancy rash”?
When I was 5 months pregnant with my son, I had an allergic reaction to a shampoo that I use before I was pregnant and up until that point in which case I then had an allergic reaction. It caused me to be allergic to the hormones that I was producing while I was pregnant. It looked and felt like poison ivy from head to toe. It itched really bad. It was gone within an hour after I had my son except for the scars. I was just wondering how common it was. I’m now pregnant with my second son and i’m 30 weeks and nothing like that has happened again. And I have REALLY sensitive skin now.
