Pregnant with reddish bumps on toes, itching and sensitive skin. Swollen toes. What is causing this?

I am 36 weeks pregnant and for a few weeks now I have had red bumps all over my toes(both feet) and in between it has gotten really itchy and burning like crazy and sensative to touch. When it started growing on the inner side of my feet I went and saw my physician. He said it might be a heat rash and gave me a cream to help. Now I'm noticing that my feet(even underneath) and toes are completely covered in these little bumps and itchy and burning, and nothing has been feeling better. My toes are swollen and it looks like my feet are starting to swell.
Help? :(

Thanks for the query.
Physiological edema of the feet is common in pregnancy.
That can be seen more in advanced gestational age.
And some women may have red spots along with edema due to stretching of the skin layers.
So you once check for your blood pressure, urine albumin levels and coagulation profile.
And take rest preferably in left lateral position with foot end elevation.
Restrict salt intake in food.

For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
