I am pretty sure I have PUPPP, ridiculous rash all over my body that began with stretch marks on my abdomen, intolerably itchy, want to take my skin off, etc. I look like a lot of the photos I've found online. My MW said it sounds like I have PUPPP and to make myself comfortable, but basically offered no other ideas on how to do that. I am currently drinking nettle tea, taking dandelion root, milk thistle, and nettle extracts also and washing frequently with pine tar soap. I also use Sarna to tame the worst of it for a short-lived period.
Now, as I read these other threads about itching though, I am scared I might have cholestasis. I went to a GP in town and he told me that despite the culture coming up negative, I had scabies. (I do not have scabies; I got that when I was 10 and it was totally different. Also, he prescribed a highly toxic pesticide.) I could get any of the 5 OB/GYNs I called to see me because of being an 8-months-along homebirth heretic and/or they were on vacation/not seeing new patients until September. So basically I can't get anyone to take a look at me, but I need to know that I'm not putting Baby at risk before I just proceed with comfort measures and try to make it through the rest of my pregnancy (I am 35 w 3 d) and get to my planned homebirth. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks for your help!
