Itchy bumps on the legs, nipple and eyelids. Pregnant. Concerned about feeding the baby

Over half a year ago I had a rush that started on my leg, it was itchy bumps, sometime they get better and I could see just few but some days it would worth and then half of leg would be itching. Now I have the same issue on my nipple and my eye lids but more severe. Skin around my nipple is raw and produces some yellow ooze. My eye leads get all swollen and hurt a lot so is under my eyes.. In few days the skin gets dry and flaky. I’m generally speaking not allergic and was leaving in an otter country for a month but the problem didn’t go away. Now I’m pregnant and really worry about nipple problem because of how will I breast feed the baby. Please help!

It seems that your status might be atopic.

You may have dry skin and tendency to develop contact allergic dermatitis.

The lesions on legs, eyelids and breasts would be atopic dermatitis.

You might be sensitive to many known and unknown things.

You are pregnant and there is lesion on nipple. Nipple eczema...

Your worry is considerable .. But , you must remain careful.

Avoid soap,, synthetic silky and woolen clothes, deodarants,perfume, cosmetics...etc

Keep away from dusts,pollens,grass,fume...etc

Avoid cows milk,nuts, peas,fermented food,yeast,culrd,yogurt,sea food,banana ,
,bringel ..etc

Stress and worries can exacerbate your skin lesions, so be calm and cool.

You consult dermatologist for firm diagnosis and treatment.

Topical steroids,tacrolimus and pimecrolimus might be helpful.

Oral antihistaminics may be taken under supervision.

I hope you might be benefitted .
