My sister in law is 9 months pregnant and was in jail recently but now she is out and during her time in jail she started getting Red pimple like bumps that itch and turn into scabs then scar. they are all over her face and on her prego belly and on her back and her butt cheeks. they start out like red pimples that itch and in result of itching they scab up and dont heal very well. she is concerned because she has fairly clear skin normally and this started happening during her time in jail and later in her pregnancy so she dont think its the hormones from the pregnancy!! she is due anyday and she dont have insurance yet to get it checked out so she is becoming concerned since she has been out of jail for as month and no change in skin for the better. it actually has worsen so if you know anything please please reply!!!!!!!!!!! thank you

Possibly Chicken Pox (or STD)
I don't know too much about STDs, but ask her if she did anything sexual in jail.
Also ask her if she ever had Chicken Pox. I've never had them, but it could possibly be them (red spots on the body).
