Woman Allergic To Her Own Baby

Pregnancy hasn't always been easy for Summer Bostock. A little over a month before welcoming son Izaiah, the British woman broke out into a painful rash all over her body. Eventually doctors told her she was "basically" allergic to her baby.

Technically, Bostock was diagnosed with polymorphic eruption of pregnancy, or PEP, which caused the rash. "I couldn’t even have showers, because the touch of the water against my skin was too much," Summer remembers. "I would vomit, the itching was so intense, and at night I couldn’t sleep."

The good news? The day after Izaiah came into the world, the rash disappeared. What's more, Summer went on to have two more sons and luckily the PEP never returned.
