If you developed PUPPS after you delivered, how long did it take to go away?  I'm 9 days pp and about to go crazy from the itching :(

Holy smokes! I had PUPPs post delivery and it was hell for many reasons. Mainly because every body I went to said, "Oh no, that never happens after!"

 

Mine lasted about two weeks. I used Grandpas Pine Tar Soap. Don't think that made it go away, but certainly relieved the itch. I also went to a dermatologist and was prescribed a high cortisone cream. Also relieved the itch.

 

So sorry Mama! It's like adding insult to injury I know!

Mine finally went away 11 days post partum.  It was itching like crazy one day and gone the next.  So glad to be over that!
