PUPPS RASH, also known as Pruritic Urticarial Papules and Plaques of Pregnancy (PUPPP) is a chronic hive like rash that strikes some women during pregnancy. The main causes are unknown and the generally accepted treatment solution among doctors is ultimately delivery.
However there are some things that have been found to help ease this treacherous rash or at least take away the itch momentarily. Here are our top 3 things that can help PUPPS:
1- ALOE AND OATMEAL BATHS:
These are said to help soothe the itch while decreasing the red appearance of the condition. It may only bring temporary relief but even a little bit helps.
2- SARNA LOTION:
This lotion has a very distinct smell but it creates a cooling feeling on the skin and then numbs the skin slightly. This definitely helps ease the itch. Check with your doctor to be sure this is
approved to use as it may not be safe to use around a newborn.
This is a soothing soap containing allantoin (anti-inflammatory), aloe vera gel, baking soda and coconut oil. The smell is terrible and smells much like a camp fire, but the benefits many have reported are definitely worth it.
