Red Spots On The Hands At 18 Weeks Pregnant?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. During pregnancy, there are many changes in the body that occur. These changes can be in the form of increased blood pressure despite not having previously had hypertension, increased blood sugar levels even though there is no history of diabetes, emotions that fluctuate, and include changes in skin color. Skin changes during pregnancy usually occur due to 3 things, namely:
Hormone. Hormonal changes in pregnant women can cause skin changes in the form of blackness, lines on the stomach, red spots and so on. Pre-existing skin disorders. Such as allergies, yeast infections, psoriasis and others. Pregnancy conditions. Itching in pregnancy, prurigo in pregnancy, pemphigoid gestationis and many more.
If the condition you are feeling right now is not due to a previous skin condition, and the condition itself does not cause any symptoms or disorders, especially if you mentioned that so far it is fading by itself, then it is most likely due to hormones and is not dangerous. However, if at any time the red spots do not disappear, they get more and more, or there is itching and so on, don't hesitate to see a skin specialist.
Meanwhile, keep your body clean, and try to see if there are certain moments where the spots appear. Like every time you sweat, or every time you eat certain foods, every time you feel tired, and the like. If you find it, try to avoid the condition for a while. Also, keep a routine in control of your pregnancy, and live a healthy lifestyle for the good of you and your baby. We wish you a smooth pregnancy and childbirth.
So, hopefully this is useful.
