Default Itchy already?? :(

I'm only around week 4 or 5, and I've developed a horrible rash on my chest. It starts right above my breasts and goes up all the way to the top of my neck, with a few bumps near the hairline. I've been using Benadryl gel, but it only helps for a little while. Im trying so hard not to scratch, but I'm itching like crazy! My co-worker thinks its PUPPPS, but isn't it way too early for that?

Right at the beginning I got itchy bumps under my neck and on the side of my face (think sideburn area). It turned out to be an allergy to my MAC makeup that I've used for almost ten years.
I am still getting tiny bumps right at my cleavage, but I think it's because I'm so huge that my skin is unable to breathe and it's causing a breakout of sorts.

Many people have skin sensitivity during pregnancy, so you may have developed a reaction to a product that you never had a problem with before. In my first and second trimester I changed over to sensitive soap, and free and clear detergent.

PUPPPS usually happens in the 3rd trimester, and it generally starts on your belly, around the location of stretch marks.

I think you guys are right about the allergic reaction. My puppy licked my neck the day I got the bumps. It just didn't occur to me it was him since he does that a lot and I never had a problem. I guess I need to be more careful with anything allergenic from now on. The itching is finally letting down, but it still looks like I've got some skin disease.

Yeah, I'm getting to the point where I couldn't care less what I look like... I just want to stop itching!
