If it's DH going on a low iodine should short circuit the rash - google "thyca". It should be safe for pregnancy, but ask your practitioner. You should see the rash improve quickly if it is DH if you decrease iodine. You can add back iodine slowly if there are concerns because of pregnancy. It is not a long term solution for anyone.
To relieve symptoms, moisturize the rash - I like Vanicream. Also, ice packs help with itching.
Good luck and congratulations!
