I have these little bumps all over my chest all the sudden. They look like pimples or zits and they itch like crazy. You can't tell from the picture but they are bright red.
Is this a pregnancy symptom? What can I do about it? I keep absently itching making them bigger and more itchy.

I would guess hives if they've appeared suddenly

My current pregnancy has caused cystic acne all over my face, chest and entire back. I've never had this problem before :( my Midwife approved and prescribed Benzoyl Peroxide gel, but it was $100 after insurance so I decided to suffer instead lol. I'm 27 weeks now and my face and chest are settling down, but my back is still covered.

It was an allergic reaction to my neasua meds. I took my younger two shopping and my face randomly went numb, I could hardly talk. I called my ob who had me come in. I'm fine now.... just extra sleepy from the Benadryl they gave me.
