Itchy bumps on limbs during pregnancy. What are they?

My friend is 6 weeks pregnant and she developed tiny itchy clear spaced out bumps on her legs, neck , arms and belly. Lotion stops it for a little while but they still itch and don t go away. She also had this with one of her other pregnancy s,just not as severe. What are these bumps and what can be done to help them go away?
