In desperate need of advice!

Ok so I am 36 weeks along, and I'm suddenly breaking out in a rash on my stomach. It started as a few bumps and now its covering a space bigger than my hand. Its making my stomach itch so bad I can't even sleep! I've looked up PUPPs and have tried Benedryl and oatmeal lotion. I have a doc's visit on Tues of next week but I'm not sure I'll last till then if I can't get some relief! Have any moms out there had PUPPS and if so, what did you use to help with the itching?? Its driving me insane!

  • I have never had PUPPS, but try cool compresses. That will usually soothe itchy skin. Good luck!

  • Tried cold compresses too, but it only works for about 2 min and then its back again :(
