About a week ago I woke up with a small red patch on my right side, it was a little bit itchy, doubled in size then got dry, so I put coconut oil on it and it pretty much went away except for some redness. Yesterday I woke up and it was back and itchy, if I scratched it it felt like someone had gouged me with a knife, and now today it is probably 3 times the size and feels like it's on fire and is pretty itchy. I have an appointment on the 16th or 17th and I don't know if I should just deal with it until then or make one before then. Does this sound like PUPPS? What can I do to relieve it until my appt?Answer Question

Pupps is usually concentrated to your abdomen. It does sound like it might be......but then again it could just be severe eczema. Take a warm bath with some baking soda in, it'll sooth both the itching and burning. Then cover it with aquaphor (use an old t-shirt as it sometimes stains when used heavily). It worked for me, hope it provides you some relief.
