Your hands don't itch with PUPPS (if your hands and feet were itchy, it might be cholestasis) Is it all over your body or just your belly (if it's just your belly, then it's not PUPPS either)? I'd try Grandpa's pine tar soap (made for skin issues like eczema), or oatmeal baths. Ice packs maybe? Good luck. I had PUPPS with my first, and a mild case this time, and itching during pregnancy is just miserable.
I had PUPPS on my hands and feet. I had the PUPPS spots from my neck down to my toes. Is it everywhere or just your belly? PUPPS kind of goes everywhere except your face.
I wasn't clear, I was meaning the palms/soles of your hands and feet =) Obviously it can be on the back of your hands and tops of your feet (and even in between fingers and toes-which is awful)
It is only on my stomach and no where else. It gets all hived up too. I will have to try the pine tar soap. My midwife recommended Dandelion root so i have been trying that, but it isn't helping much.
