A 31-year-old pregnant woman was referred for an extremely pruritic rash that was present for two weeks, starting from her 26th week of pregnancy. *puts hand up* oh hell yes. Skin changes occur during pregnancy under hormonal influence. We report a case of PV associated with herpes simplex type 1 virus (HSV-1) which occurred in the third trimester of pregnancy… gestationis بثورات (PG) یک بیماری خود ایمنی تاول مرتبط با بارداری است. The patient was commenced on prednisolone 40 mg once daily, with rapid resolution of the skin lesions.
Polymorphic eruption of pregnancy (PEP), also known as pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP) is a common benign dermatosis of pregnancy mainly affecting primigravidae and multiple pregnancies. Summary We report two unusually fiorid cases of polymorphic eruption of pregnancy (PEP) or pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy, the first occurring in a triplet pregnancy, and the second with some clinical features more suggestive of pemphigoid gestationis (PG). PG recurred during the second trimester of her second pregnancy. INTRODUCTION Gestational herpes (HG) or herpes gestationis or pemphigoid gestationis is a rare intensely pruritic bullous autoimmune disease that occurs associated with gestation or the presence of tumors trofoblsticos as mola hlaatiforme and coriocarcinoma1,2. This a retrospective study of five male and five female patients (mean age 47.87 years). There are three general categories of pregnancy-associated skin conditions: (1) benign skin conditions from normal hormonal changes, (2) preexisting skin conditions that change during pregnancy, and (3) pregnancy-specific dermatoses.

The majority of pregnant women will notice skin changes at some point. XX journal articles were selected for presentation because they contain new safety data or other information relevant to Nanogam / intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG). Up to 1 percent of pregnant women develop a condition characterized by itchy, red bumps and larger patches of a hive-like rash on their bellies.
