I need some advice...I am 17 weeks pregnant and I keep getting this aweful rash! It seems like it might be poison ivy or a serious reaction to something, but it is painfully itchy, and WILL NOT GO AWAY! I have talked to two different doctors about it. One gave me a steroid cream, but both told me to go to a specialist. I cannot afford one, so my back is up against a wall. The steroid cream worked when I was not pregnant, but I do not want to take it while I am (I am very cafeful and picky about the medications I take). Would anyone have any suggestions as to what types of medications are safe to take while pregnant that may help clear up possible poison ivy/oak/sumac rash? Maybe some healthy, safe home remedies?
