I've heard of PUPPs during pregnancy, but I am 4 weeks post partum.
I have red bumps all over the inside of my thigh, kind of rash like. They ITCH really bad! I also have the red bumps under my breasts, and on the backs of my thighs and on my hips. It started by my stretch marks being super itchy, but then these marks appeared, and now my belly isn't the worst of it anymore.
Could I have PUPPs post partum? Nothing is helping... cortisone didnt help, and calamine lotion is providing some relief but not that much. I've never been allergic before.. so I dont THINK its an allergic reaction.
My family doctor was stumped, and prescribed me a topical prednisone. I haven't taken it yet, because I was not sure if topical prednisone is that safe if I am breastfeeding, my doctor didn't really give me much reassuring info on that.
