Does anyone have any experience with a pregnancy related rash called PUPP? Apparently it can go on after birth as well. My sister in law has a terrible rash and a newborn:( She is't getting any sleep and doctors don't seem to have much advice other then hydrocortisone cream.

Yes, I had PUPPP from week 33-ish until I delivered my twins at about 38 weeks.  However, the PUPPP came back while I was nursing - though that's atypical.  Most of the time, PUPPP goes away very soon after the birth. However, some people do get post-partum PUPPP.

 

What helped me the most was the PUPPP soap from RainerSoapWorks - http://rainiersoapworks.com/cart/category/9/puppp-relief

 

Could your SIL see a dermatologist?  (That's who diagnosed my PUPPP)  A dermatologist could rule out other rashes too. 

 

I hope she feels better soon!

This is great, thanks so much. I've just checked out their site and ordered some soap and cream. Thanks for the recommendation.

I had post-partum PUPPP, and it was awful!  I want to cry just thinking about it.  I didn't ever find relief for it, I just suffered through until it finally went away.  :(  I hope the soap works for your SIL.

Homeopathic apis meliifica 5 tablets 3 times per day and the soap someone mentioned above.  Between the two I actually knew a woman who was able to resolve her PUPPS before delivery, though generally these two things will just make it more tolerable.  Benadryl for help sleeping.

Oops, just re-read and saw she is postpartum.  If breastfeeding she should avoid the benadryl as it can decrease milk supply, fine to use it in pregnancy though.
