Burning rash on legs?

Burning rash on legs? Topic: Doctor information for a research
June 16, 2019 / By Selina
Question: I am 22 weeks pregnant and I just developed in the last 20 min a rash that looks like heat rash but it doesnt itch it just burns. It is on my calves and thighs and I do not have razor burn because i havnt shaved in like 4 days...yummy. Anyway, it seems to be spreading and I wasnt able to find information in my pregnancy book about wich rashes are harmful and wich arent. Anyway, if anybody has experienced this before please let me know if you called your ob and what they said. thanks for your help! at this time of night i cant just pick up the phone and call my doc that is why i am trying to find out if this warrants an ER visit. I did try to research the internet and all my books but i cant come up with anything wich leads me to believe i am fine. I have been using the same kind of soap for a while now so i dont think thats it. its ok, I am just prone to heat rash however being that it is the winter and I am not sweating i am gonna call the people at the ER and speak to a doctor, thatnk you for you input. You dont seem rude just frustrated with stupid questions!

Hmmm...burning rash with no cause? I would think something like that would make someone go to the ER or at least call their doctor. But, since you'd rather hear from people who have little or no experience in the medical field, I will do some research for you. In the meantime, have you used any new lotion, soap or anything you could be having an allergic reaction to? Unfortunately I can't find anything that says specifically what it could be, but most websites say not to self-diagnose a rash becasue there are many different kinds, some that are highly contagious. I'm sorry I probably seem rude, but I don't understand. You can't find a reason for it so you assume you are fine? I wouldn't take any chances. I'm glad you are going to call the ER and I don't think this is a stupid question, I just don't understand why people would rather ask about serious stuff here than call a doctor to begin with.

It could be staph - but it could also be something else. If the skin is scaly / flaky and the rash itches - it could be a sebborheic dermatitis - an autoimmune rash - your skin is attacking itself. This is not to suggest any for of flesh eating bacteria mind you - many people have this disorder. I would suggest seeing a Dr. - Dermatologist would be better - ASAP. Also - I would suggest you stop putting hydro-cortisone on the rash until you are seen - the steroid in it could actually make the condition worse. In the mean time - keep the area as dry as possible and keep lotions to a minimum. You could also be allergic to something either perfume based or an ingredient in something. Get it looked at by a Doc.

If you changed soaps or deodorant or fragrance. it could be from that. It happens in men when they change stuff. Let him get in cool air, shower that arm without soap, and air the arm out for about 24 hours. sounds like heat rash. His shirts may be too tight for him, Gold bond works wonders there. Good luck

have him take a few doses of Benedryl exactly as directed and use Benedryl cream. if he doesn't get better in a few days or worsens, go to an urgent care.

Okay, weird but i just had the same thing going on for like the last week. I believe it to be chafing, and i think that my skin is just real sensitive for some reason during this pregnancy. There is a gel that they make ( i think its by summers eve, and ya, its over with that stuff in the store) and it helped me and cleared it up in about a day. Good luck.

Have you spoken to your doctor about perhaps you taking a unisom at night to knock you out so you can get some sleep? There are sleep aids that are approved for use during pregnancy and it may be enough to keep you asleep even if your legs don't agree. During the day you will just have to deal with it probably, but you are so close, your baby will be here in 2 months... you just gotta hang on a bit longer.

i'm purely 9 weeks and characteristic them. i fairly dont think of there's a therapy or therapy according to se you're able to do whilst pregnant -- different than baths, muscle rubs, etc (the huge-unfold stuff that doesnt paintings haha). one element I do is take Tylenol PM -- it a minimum of facilitates me sleep on the grounds that they're frequently the worst whilst in mattress altho i'm getting them whilst sitting in a chair watching television too.
