  • cont.

    If it is a definite sore then it could be shingles which could occur in pregnancy because you get run down easily and your immune system gets compromised so if you had chicken pox as a child it could re-manifest itself as shingles.

    Do a Google search on PUPPPS and on Shingles. See if either fits your symptoms and tell your doctor what you think it is. If you think it's PUPPPS then feel free to send me a private message and I'll talk you through it and commiserate with you because it was truly horrible to deal with and I totally get it.

  • Are you sure it's sores, or is it more like a rash? When I was pregnant I had a horrible rash called PUPPPS. It is a pregnancy related rash and it sounds a lot like what you are describing, only it was not really sores. It sort of looked like poison ivy, and it acted like poison ivy only it wouldn't go away. It was absolutely horrible. They say that it won't go away until after your baby is born BUT I beat mine by taking iron supplements. It has to do with liver health and mild anemia. It is generally uncommon, but when it does occur it is most common in women who are in their first pregnancies and are pregnant with a boy.

    I found immediate relief from the itching by applying ice packs or taking a cool bath or shower. If you don't have any ice packs take a few dish towels, wet them, and put them in the freezer. Or fill a zip lock back with ice and water.
