Pupps

I was one of the lucky few that had PUPPS with DD. Now, against the odds, I have it again with this LO. I started itching last week and am completly miserable now. The doctor did write me a prescription for a steriod cream and that seems to be helping. She also ran blood work to make sure there wasn't anything else going on. Everything came back normal, I just have a horrible rash. I think I remember it getting better (or I adjusted) with DD. I sure hope that is the case this time because I am only 27 weeks! Last time I was 34 weeks when I got it. We were able to see his beautiful face (he looks just like his dad) so that reminds me it is all worth it!

I'm sorry to hear this. I've been wondering if I have it too. I'm itching like crazy and have been for two weeks. My legs have what looks like tons of mosquito bites and one has a crazy patch on it that's so red and bumpy. My arms have tiny red pimple like bumps that are itchy too. Do you have anything like I described? I can't tell if it's environmental or pupps.

I did not have it my first pregnancy, but did have it this one. It started at 18 weeks, and lasted till about 24 weeks. It was no fun! PUPPS is usually on your belly/thighs not so much your legs and arms. The cream was the only thing that gave me any relief.

I don't have a picture on my computer to share but mine looks a lot like hives.
