so when i was pregnant w/ my son I broke out in what looked like to me chicken-pocks but the dr. said no it's pups which is something you can only get while your pregnant and only about 1 out of every 250 pregnant women get it and that you almost never get it twice it usually only happens to first time moms well here i am 31weeks with my second and i'm getting it again so it's not bad enough that i got it the first time but now i have to deal with it again and it's driving me crazy my dr. appointment is on feb.1 and i'm gonna ask her if i could be that liver thing that looks just like pups cuz i read a magazine and it said that if your liver starts to fail it producess to much of something and starts to send it out to the surface of your skin or something so i need to ask my dr. about that????????? has this ever happended to anyone ?????? or am i the only one?????????
I personally did not have this but a friend of mine did. She said the itching was horrible. They induced her a week early because it got so bad. I know it is easier said than done, try not to itch it!!!! I know she took a lot of oat meal baths. I wish you the best of luck!!!
Yup, im familiar with PUPS. I had it bad all over my back, chest, and stomach for weeks. After lots of Aveeno oatmeal cream and hydrocortisone...it seems to be sorta gone for now. Lets see if it comes back later on in the pregnancy.
