Have you used a new soap, detergent, perfume, cleaning supplies in the last 48 hours?



I would try taking a shower and use the mildest soap you have and then air dry. Making an oatmeal paste to see if that soothes it would not hurt. My sister use to break out in hives from stress and we would have to put calamine lotion on them until the benadryl kicked in for her.

Sounds like what I had. Don't scratch. Use hydrocortisone cream and take benadryl

Could it be PUPs? Although extremely annoying for its sufferers (because of the itch), it presents no long-term risk for either the mother or unborn child. PUPPP frequently begins on the abdomen and spreads to the legs, feet, arms, chest, and neck
