I am so depressed nowadays b/c I was diagnosed with PUPPP (Pruritic Urticarial Papules and Plaques of Pregnancy) which is sooooooo itchy. It's all over my legs and arms and starting to show on my butt and a lil on my back. I am 14 weeks pregnant and usually this skin dilemma goes away only after delivery so I will still have a loooong way to deal with this with sleepless nights and bad moods. I feel so down. Right now, I'm still searching for the right remedy to ease the itchiness. Anybody who share my sentiment? OR maybe you know a remedy that really helps and is safe to the unborn baby inside me!?
i'm sorry that you are going through this. I have never experienced this myself, but I wanted to say something. this board is really slow, it seems to me. not many people posting. I wish i had something to say, or some remedy for ya. Hang in there.
Well my OB gave me something but it doesn't give me permanent relief. It will just give me an itch-free skin for almost 2 hrs then the itchiness comes back again, it's crazy! Thanks for your welcome guys. I think this forum might be too crowded for this issue but still hoping to meet people like me here. Glad you responded! Thanks
I feel for you... my skin itches like crazy lately. Mostly my stomach, back and legs, but all over to some degree. I don't have a visible rash, but I find myself scratching to the point I draw blood. I'm not sure if it's the change in weather or something pregnancy related, but I'm going to ask at my next appointment.
I've heard that benadryl can take some of the edge off the itching and help you get some sleep. Maybe check with your doctor to see if it's safe. I'm sure just being able to sleep through the night would help immensely.
I used a lotion called Sarena lotion, or something very similar. It's pricey, but it works. I have a sun photosensitivity that I didn't develop until I was pregnant. Unfortunately, it has not gone away.
