Pregnancy can result in increase in some rashes and worsening of others. There are some rashes that are particular to pregnancy and are associated with itching such as prurigo of pregnancy, pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (blood tests show increase in bile, persons may have itching with or without jaundice)
Most of these are treated with topical anticorticosteroid creams and oral antihistamines.

You should speak to your doctor before using any medication.

In terms of the white discharge pregnancy is associated with increase in normal female discharge, it is also associated with increase incidence of yeast infections which cause a yellow white discharge and vaginal itching.
You doctor can examine you and take a look at the discharge, if it is a yeast infection it is easily treated.

I hope this helps
