  • Have you heard of pups? It is a rash like shingles and a lot of doctors aren't even aware of it. Most of them have to ask another doctor about it. You normally get it the last few weeks of your pregnancy and a few days after delivery it goes away. Very itchy and sometime stings. I had it on my belly and my friend had it all over her body. It is found in the baby's DNA, caused by baby. and leaves when baby does. They aren't sure why or anything but that is what it is..PUPS or PUPPS
