2 . SKIN TAGS :
3 . ATOPIC DERMATITIS
4 . SPIDER VEINS :
Pccurs due to hormonal changes and increased blood volume during pregnancy. They appear as tiny red colored curvilinear threads on the face, neck, and arms. Usually fades after delivery.
5 . VARICOSE VEINS :
With family history, few pregnant women are more likely to present with varicose veins most commonly on the legs seen as bulky ( swollen/dilated) bluish/greenish veins. Varicose veins could be found on the vulva, vagina, and rectum, in which case they are termed hemorrhoids. Typically, these are only of cosmetic concern and may clear up after delivery. This results from the enlarging uterus compressing the veins underneath decreasing the venous return from the lower half of the body.
