New alergic reactions since being preggers?

Post by purplepants on Fri May 22, 2009 3:03 am

I went to the midwife on wednesday & had my 28 week bloods taken, i have never before had a problem with the little plaster they put on afterwards,
but on wednesday night when i took it off affraid my arm under the plaster looked like it had been stuck about 10 times with the needle instead of once, there was only a tiny mark in the middle where the needle had gone in & a circle of red blotches around it where the sticky bit of the plaster was scratch , its finally starting to look normal again this morning Laughing

Anyone else had sudden reactions to things they were fine with before Question

No I haven't developed any allergies. Might it have been a little heat rash under the plaster?

Good idea because they say that your skin becomes more sensitive during pregnancy, I forgot about that!

Could be the brand their using. I'm pretty sure my hospital just use a little bit of cotton gauze and a bit of micropore tape. One time the nurse actually used the same bit of gauze that he'd used to sterilize the area. Bloody cheapskates.
