Has anyone gotten PUPPP in the 1st trimester?

Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy

I broke out in a rash on my arms and legs. I am only 6 weeks and my doctor who had to use a med dictionary to diagnose me said it was PUPPP. But from every med book I have and what I have looked online says it only occurs in the last two weeks of pregnancy and rarely occurs again in a subsequent pregnancy.
I had it with my son at 36weeks on the lower part of my stomach. I have none on my stomach just legs and arms.
I am terribly itchy and she gave me a class C steroid cream. I refuse to use this because it has been found to cause cleft pallet and lip. I am taking Claritin at night and Aveeno lotion in the day.

But I was just curious if I am the only one who is getting PUPPP this early?

  • I got it and it lasted the whole time! I started using the St. Ives products that moisturize; right now it's "moisture relief", I think. It has minerals and such in it that for me relieved the itching. Didn't stop the stretch marks that popped up everywhere I had the PUPPPS though- and that was everywhere lol.
