There are multiple reasons for rashes in pregnancy all the way from simple contact dermatitis to more dangerous conditions that can involve problems with your liver and bile acids. Yes, some specific rashes are connected to being pregnant and can usually be expected to resolve once the pregnancy is completed. If you have eliminated any new products that you might be allergic to, then it is time to discuss this problem with your doctor or midwife. Not only can they provide more effective treatments to relieve your itching, but they can also make sure that nothing serious is going on. Sometimes rashes in pregnancy may be associated with more severe problems, so it is important to be seen by your healthcare provider if your rash is not resolving. Your health care provider may also wish to refer you to a dermatologist for additional help if they are unable to resolve this problem for you.
All the best, and also best wishes for a safe and successful pregnancy,
