Hi girls, in the last 4 days ive developed hives, ive 8painful but itchy ones on one leg and 11 on the other, they are fairly big welts. Ive a few on my tummy and 2 on my back. They are so annoying, itchy and sometimes sore. Ive been using calamine lotion but to no avail. Anyone else suffer with hives during pregnancy? Any good safe treatment or should i be worried? Thanks

I broke out in hives in early pregnancy as well and in some really random places! I asked my doctor about it and she said that Anthisan cream is safe to use. You can get it over the counter at any chemist.

I feel your pain redroses! Am just coming to the end of mine. All on my lower legs - I used tea tree cream. Not sure if you are supposed to but it seemed to help! Unfortunately I scratched the hell out of one of them in bed and made my selfbleed and have big ugly scab on my leg now! (lovely!)

They really are rotten and so irriating. Ive been using the anthisan cream and its helping the older ones but ive a load of new one yesterday and today and its not helping on them. I was begining tot hink it was something i was eating as ive never had hives before but ive been reassured its just the extra hormones ,as with everything else hormones are to blame O:| Hope we all get some relief soon.
