PUPPP suggestions

Sara - posted on 07/08/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




I have recently developed PUPPP (which is basically red itchy bumps that appears in stretch marks). I have it on my sides, stomach, thighs, and tricep area. I am almost 32 weeks, it started right when i hit 31 weeks. It itches like crazy & is driving me nuts. I've been taking Benadryl to help me sleep through the itch, but it doesn't relieve it. I've tried cortisone/hydrocortisone and that does nothing. I've tried gold bond itch powder, nothing. and some other rash cream stuff, nothing seems to help. The only thing that provides a temporary relief of about 20 minutes is aloe and ice.

Does anyone have any suggestions to help stop the itch?
