Cutaneous eruptions

The most common cutaneous eruptions are gestational herpes and urticaria.

The term herpes is confused, because the problem is caused neither by a herpesvirus nor by other virus. It is thought that the cause of gestational herpes is some abnormal antibodies that react against tissues of your own body. This herpes is formed by blisters full of liquid and causes an intense itch.

As for urticaria, red, irregular, flat or slightly bulky spots appear, most frequently in the abdomen, which produce an intense itch in the abdomen. Sometimes they also have tiny blisters.

In order to deal with both types of cutaneous eruptions we have corticoids, which are applied with a cream or administered by oral route in the most serious cases.
