Common Skin Rashes in Pregnancy - What it is

POLYMORPHIC ERUPTION OF PREGNANCY (PEP) / PRURITIC URTICARIAL PAPULES AND PLAQUES OF PREGNANCY (PUPPP)

PEP or PUPPP is a relatively common skin problem in pregnant women. It usually affects first pregnancies and occurs towards the end of the third trimester or immediately after delivery.

ATOPIC ERUPTION (ECZEMA) OF PREGNANCY:

Eczema is a very common condition in pregnant and non-pregnant women. It can present for the first time during pregnancy and can occur at any stage during pregnancy.

Patients usually have a personal or family history of other atopic conditions, such as asthma or allergic rhinitis.

INTRAHEPATIC CHOLESTASIS OF PREGNANCY (ICP):

Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) is a potentially serious liver disorder that can develop in pregnancy. Normally, bile acids flow from your liver to your gut to help you digest food. In ICP, the bile acids do not flow properly and build up in your body instead.

ICP can run in families, but it can happen even if there is no family history.

If you have had ICP in a previous pregnancy, you have a high chance of developing it again in another pregnancy

Some studies have found that babies whose mothers have ICP have a higher chance of being born prematurely or stillborn.
