PUPP RASH

Hey mamas. I’m 32 weeks with Tobias. This itch is spreading like wildfire. Dr. recommended Benadryl and hydrocortisone and I’m barely getting any relief and it’s still spreading. Any recommendations? Throughout pregnancy, I’ve used hemp lotion… Mostly coconut oil tho…now I’ve converted to almond oil and Vaseline even tried aquaphor …

Oh you poor thing! Try some white vinegar to help soothe the itching! I hope that helps!

@Paige thank you! Haven’t heard that one yet

aqueous cream with menthol. I had the same and it disappeared after baby was born xx

Try using pine tar soap. I also got a prescription of hydrOXYzine/Atarax 25 mg oral tablet from my Dr for the itch, as well as a prescription of clobetasol 0.05% topical cream which is stronger than hydrocortisone.

@Bella pls try Aloe Vera cut from the inside of the aloe plant I definitely recommend 100% Benadryl, Hydrocortisone, mixed oil and Vaseline will make it burn like hell and will make it worse than it is in my experience

I always use toothpaste for itches. It’s the menthol and baking soda that helps with relief. It’s not a forever solution but definitely is something everyone has on hand In case you don’t have these other options right away. It also works on bee stings too.

I used pine tar soap and it really helped

You need a new dr because I had this and was prescribed a steroid cream and my itching went away instantly. My dr said benadryl wouldn’t work because the rash isnt an allergy, it is caused by pregnancy hormones.

I was one of the unlucky few that didn’t get this until after pregnancy, after delivery the rash began. I tried everything, but what eventually worked was a steroid cream and some allergy tablets. It did take several weeks to go away and kept spreading Initially. It was awful so I feel for you, I went to three different doctors aswell as nobody knew what it was 🙄

Thank you all ❤️

@Kaydee please try Demol lotion (500L green bottle one) in replace of soap and Epimax for body lotion. Helped when I had this

@Ema unfortunately I tried that but it didn’t help :( I’m only 9 days away to my c section so hopefully only 9 days left of the itch 😅

@emma @Kaydee thank you.

@Bella a week or two before my child was out of me. My rash went away, yours will be gone by the time you give birth. Ice packs keep the swelling down if you scratch too much.

@Ari did your rash go away on its own or from taking something or applying an ointment. Ice does help!!

@Bella my rash went away on it on. But i still have scarring from scratching sm.

@Bella keeping yout hands moisturized helped me. My skin was just so dry too

@Ari yes so hard not to scratch 😅 specially when I’m waking up but still sleeping
