Ugh! I need some advice.

I experienced what I assume was PUPPP starting 4 or 5 days after I gave birth to my son. The itch and unsightly rash was driving me crazy so I tried the dandelion recommendation given for PUPPP in several threads here at MDC. I'm happy to say my rash is going away. It's still sort of visible, but nothing like it was before and I'm still a little itchy, but it's tolerable. My current complaint is that all the places the rash used to be are swollen and extremely dry, my arms and hands especially. I'm starting to feel an uncomfortable numb feeling in my arms and it's definitely becoming a concern for me. Could this be a reaction to the dandelion? The only other medication I've taken was Benadryl when I was extra-itchy.

If the swelling doesn't go down soon, I'm going to be making another doc appointment asap.

Anybody else experienced this or have any advice?
