Abstract

Physicians may often mistake normal physiological skin changes in pregnancy for pathologic changes, so being able to recognize the skin manifestations unique to pregnancy is of the utmost importance to avoid unnecessary testing and stress for the obstetric patient. Most physiological skin changes will resolve postpartum, so reassurance and expectant management is indicated in almost all cases.
