PUPPPS? Anyone else? HELP!

I have the PUPPPS rash and have had it for about two weeks. This is my first pregnancy and it's a boy which they said is most likely the cause (idk why) but I can't sleep or do anything at all. My doc prescribed me benadryl and steroid cream but no help at all. Has anyone else had this and found something that has worked for them? I'm desperate.

Hello did you ever find something to help you out with this rash!? I am having the same thing and doctor also prescribed the same thing to me. This is my second day with it and benadryl seems to help me but he also said if in two weeks it doesn't clear up to go back...he said i might need to see a dermatologist by then if it doesn't clear up.

Yes I had Puppps rash when I was pragnant with my first baby. I tried everything as drs and midwife prescribe. Unfortunately there is no cure for this pregnancy rash. It will go away by itself after your baby will born in few days. My one gone automatically in 2days aft my baby born. Take care

Still hoping to find a cure:/ with 9 weeks left I'm hoping it let's up a little. I almost feel like I could itch my skin off lol. I have another doc appt on Wed I'll keep you updated. Right now showers are the only thing that relieve it for a little bit.

UPDATE: I've had this now for about two months and got rid of it on my neck but it's still on my belly. At this point I'm oddly used to it. I put damp rags on my belly when it starts to itch and it soothes it.
