This is Dr. David

have you tried antihistamine creams like benadryl creams?

have you tried prescription stronger steroid creams?

Immunosuppressive medications such as azathioprine or ciclosporin may also be used successfully but their safety in pregnancy has to be weighed against your symptoms.

you should ask your doctor to refer you for azathioprine or ciclosporin infusions to see if they help.

you might have to see a rheumatologist to get evaluated for these infusions to help your Pemphigoid gestationis
