I'm 19.5 weeks and I've had PUPPS for about 3 weeks. I'm miserable and I'm actually starting to have sores from scratching. I'm concerned that it's going to get worse. I'm having a girl...and only one. I'm not that huge. I've only gained ~10 pounds so I donn't really know why me?!

In my situation, I'd be gintetg CVS instead of amnio (done at 10-12 weeks, I think). I would choose to have it done to determine if my fetus has Downs or has inherited a particular inherited problem in my family. Yes, I would choose to terminate if the test came back positive for markers.I can't understand why anybody would go through amnio to determine downs unless they WOULD choose to terminate. The argument that they would want to prepare' is kindof bogus with the new ultrasound techniques. They would still find out well before the baby was born for preparation. Was this answer helpful?

there are no home remidies, i tried them all, last year, june/2006 i had very very bad poosin oak, all over my body, on my face, legs arms, everywhere, i tried everything, nothing worked, even the hydrocortisone and oak n' ivy, but the one thing that did help, was running my arms, and legs under hot water after i got the rash. it burned off the tops of the pustles, and oozed, and then the pustles turned back into pustles, and in 2 days of rinsing with hot water, they turned to scabs, best treatment ever. just dont make it too hot, maybe slightly hotter than you can stand in a shower, DONT TAKE BATHS!!! the baths will make you break out more, the urishol oil comes off in the bath water, and when you get out, it coats your whole body, its unavodable. if you need advice, my inbox is open, i suffered a horrible case of poosin oak, it was so bad, it came back a year later as a minor rash, even though i had stayed completely away from the forest, and threw out all of the infected clothes. strange huh? well, just go through my profile, my inbox welcomes all messages.References :

I am 33 weeks and a day.tha I have been suffering with this rash since I found out I was pregnant. Doctors have treated me for staff, scabies, and allergic reactions, but none could tell me what it was. It is very uncomfortable and I am ready to get rid of it. I have been using the Aveeno Calamine Lotion and that has helped a little. Cool compresses also sooth the itch. The oatmeal bath by Aveeno is good for the mild itchy spots but thats it for me. This is my second pregnancy I never had this with my first so I guess thats a rarity.

This had to be the worst part of my pregnancy, I finally found out it was pupps after my pregnancy, none of the doctors could tell me what it was and after I had my son, I saw another doctor ,who replied,oh that's pups and told me what it was. It goes away as soon as you deliver, so you have to grin and bear it unless your doctor will prescribe you oral steroids,(prednisone) my doctor did prescribe theses but would only give e a few weeks because the unknown danger to the baby. I suffered the rest of the time, the steroids were the only thing that worked, no matter how many creams,lotions, bath soaks etc. you try they do not work.

I am 20 weeks pregnant and I just found out I have PUPPS. Gold Bond Medicated Lotion WITH MENTHOL ( the green bottle) works wonders for me. It helps the itch for about an hour at a time and you cam apply it 3 or 4 times a day.

Hi ladies, im 36 weeks pregnant and i have developed this horrid rash almost 2 weeks ago. Ive switched to all cotton clothing and clear and free laundry detergent. my rash was very severe and the itch was very intense. My doctor treated me with oral steroids and with benadryl. Nothing seems to be working, the rash is spreading and its taking over my life. i find sleeping just helps take my mind off of it. I really am curious to try these other remedies listed here. Hopefully something will help take the itch away. Best of luck to all of you ladies!

I am currently 38 weeks pregnant with pupps. I am PRAYING They induce me at the doctor appointment today because I am absolutely miserable. I have found a few things to curb the itch temporarily (by this I mean like 5-10 min at a time), benedryl cream, benedryl spray, ice packs. I have started to take dandilion root pills and this seems to help for about an hour after i take them and lasts for about 45 min to an hour. I hope this helps anyone else going through this awful painful, itchy rash. But the bright side is my baby boy will be here soon!

I am 33 wks pg and started to develop pups. MD said it's allergic reaction to placenta n hormones. It has spread from a small trail on my sides n abdomen to full on blotches that cover my breasts on down to my legs. I am trying aveeno body wash benadryl to sleep n topical benadryl during the day... The topical seems to work best in soothing burning itchy feeling but it is all short lived... Any suggestions someone mentioned getting prescription please share names of medicines so I can talk to my doc I don't think I can hold out 7 more weeks... Thanks
