I'm about 18 weeks pregnant and I've had a rash

Patient : I'm about 18 weeks pregnant and I've had a rash for about 7-8 weeks now..started out looking like hives on my stomach..now it looks more like psoriasis and has since spread everywhere except hands feet and lower legs (stops at back of knees) it itches like crazy but if I scratch it burns I've tried many different home remedies with no relief my doc just prescribed a topical corticosteroid but we don't know what the rash is from and I'm currently on a wait list for dermatologist..any idea what it may be or what could have caused it?
