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!
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.
