When I talked to my OB about the itching, he said that it's most likely a mild version of PUPPPs. Good news though is that he said subsequent cases are rarely as bad as the first time.

As far as treatment, he's open to me using any OTC topical stuff that helps. And to get some sleep, he said to take either a Tylenol PM or a couple Benadryl about an hour before bed. If it gets worse, I can just call in and get an RX for stronger topical creams, but it's not his first choice (or mine).

It's nice to actually have a doctor hear my concern and not just blow me off. My last OB pretty much ignored my concerns until I was in tears from exhaustion. He didn't even so much as say "If I were you, I'd do XYZ. If that doesn't work, we can look into some other options." I really hope it doesn't get that bad this time!
