red, blotchy area...

On my belly??? I was getting ready for bed tonight and noticed it in the mirror. It doesnt itch, or hurt. I only know its there because it caught my eye in the mirror... Couldnt see it otherwise. Ive been having roblems with itching higher up on my belly on and off, as well as on my legs, feet, arms, and back... But not in the area this red blotchy stuff is. Anyone else having weird skin things like this happen?

I haven't ever had skin issues during pregnancy. Could it be PUPPP? I think that's itchy though. Sorry I'm not much help!

I don't know what that might be, sorry I can't help! I did get a small little skin tag on my belly that I'm going to get checked out I think, just to be sure it's nothing more than that.

I would say PUPP or just the hormone change- a couple of my friends had really bad red rashes on their stomachs/chest after babies were born and the doc said its just a change of hormones.. Was kind of strange though!

Thanks. Im wondering if its hormone related. I completely forgot to talk to my doc about it this morning. If its still there next time I see him Ill have to remember to show it to him.
