Oh no!! How about a warm oatmeal bath? I have horrible skin…always have rashes and I have exzema esp in the summertime and my baby is the same way.  Whenever it starts to get bad I would take an oatmeal bath and it would do wonders!!  I hope you feel better

See if you can track down an allergy med designated for hives.  Claritin usually works well for me when I have those types of skin rashes.  Also, you need a lotion formulated for itchy skin; both myself and my 2 yr old get rashes frequently (really sensitive skin) and I use Aveeno Eczema/Sensitive Skin formula.  It works really well and doesn’t irritate the already sensitive skin.  Make sure you are using a really mild soap; good old Dove Unscented will do well; a lot of other soaps have dyes or are too harsh and can irritate the inflamed skin.  Light weight natural fabrics are best; so stay away from your spandex blends for a few days.  You are likely getting the itching from skin stretching to make room for baby, and then itching it has made it even more sensitive.  Hope all this helps!
