I was diagnosed with PUPPS during my third trimester. I figured that the unbearable itch and rashes would disappear after my son was delivered. It has been 6 years since I gave birth and I continue to have the itch and rashes. The area that my rashes always reappear are on my tummy, buttocks, upper thighs, and especially where I have stretch marks from pregnancy. Since last year for the first time the rash has now appear on both of my ankles and on my back where the bra straps are.
I have been battling this condition with just about anything that I can imagine. I've been to a Dermatologist. They told me I have Atopic Dermatitis and there is no cure for that. They gave me Clobetasol Propionate (steroid base cream) to use for the outbreak. At the beginning it seemed to really help and didn't take long after I use the cream to get rid of the rash. After a couple of years, it didn't seem to help much any more. I also use Eletone (non_steroid cream) to help offset the the steroid cream. I take antihistamine every night as well to help relieve the itch. At this point I am not sure if Atopic Dermatitis is what I am cursed with .
I have been to an Allergist and had skin biopsy and skin test done. I am not allergic to anything as far as they can test me. I had blood work done and nothing was abnormal accept my Vitamin D was on the low side. Since then I've been trying to up my intake on Vitamin D, but the itch is still here and doesn't seem like it's going to get better any time soon . Has anyone every had this or know someone that did? I really need some help please .
