I got the dredded "pregnancy rash" on my bump!!!! Oh its driving me insane!! It itches sooooo bad i just want to rip my skin off!! The sad thing is my skin is so stretched my tummy is numb to the touch, so i can itch and scratch and cant get relief because i can't feel myself doing it! The only thing that happens is if i scratch to hard it burns underneath my skin! Then its really miserable! Going to go see if i cant find some sort of topical something or other to help!!
Oh no I am so sorry! Try making a paste with baking soda and water and spreading that on your tummy to see if that gives you any relief. I had PUPPS in my last pregnancy and it was miserable. Hopefully your rash clears up quickly!
I had PUPPPs my last pregnancy. Used oatmeal baths, colloidal lotions but the only thing that helped it go dormant was using a low steroid cream for a week on it (prescription). I had it from 14 weeks - 20 weeks and it popped back up towards the the last month.
I find the lotion from St. Ives for Elastin Collagen really helps by applying it twice a day or whenever I am itchy. Just know that the more you itch, the more it spreads. :-p
