Lil Community: Sensitive Skin While Prego?

Lots of moms-to-be wonder out loud. This post was submitted by Beaner in The Pregnancy Posse group.

I have had the absolute best pregnancy up until now. At 17 weeks along, last week, I developed this weird itchy rash after wearing sterling silver earrings (that I wore pre-pregnancy). I've had reactions to metal on my ears before, but nothing like this. It felt like my ears were on fire. What's worse is that over the course of this past week, this annoying rash spread to my cheeks, then to my neck, down to my chest and now it's on my belly and the tops of my hands. I went to the dermatologist, and she said it sounds like being pregnant made my skin extra sensitive, and that's why it reacted this way. Have any of you had experience with sensitive skin or rashes? Ugh.
