@sorrycharlie:  omgosh PLEASE get this checked out….my friend got PUPPP with all 3 of her pregnancies and was induced & c-sectioned early on to prevent it from getting worse….her first child came at 33weeks and her others also very early but around 35w-36w i’d say? I don’t know too much about it (but I can ask her if you’d like) but I do know it all went away after delivery and babies were unharmed.

I agree to definitely get this checked out.  I don’t know if it can appear that early but I did know someone who had it.  She got it around 37ish weeks and it caused an all over itchy body rash (to the point of not sleeping at all), very intense all over swelling, and eventually high blood pressure.  They induced her around 38 weeks and ended up giving her a c-section.  It went away within a day or two of giving birth but she was told it was a very dangerous infection for her and the baby which is why they induced her.

rest assured, PUPPPs is not a dangerous condition, although uncomfortbale. It is a skin condition of pregnancy that cannot be transmitted to your baby. There is another condition called cholestasis which causes you to itch but not get a rash. One should NEVER induce for PUPPPs, however we do induce for cholestasis. It is unusual to get it this early. Could be that you have an allergic reaction to something, however it is difficult to determine since I haven’t seen your skin. Hope that helps

I have it now!!!! And no, I am not excited I have it, but I am kind of excited that there is a thread on it!

I am almost in my 35 week, and have had my rash for almost 2 weeks now.  I went to my doctor mostly because the itching was driving me nuts, to the point where I couldn’t sleep. My doctor said that it is NOT harmful to the baby, and it will go away. He prescribed me some cream (a type of vaselline, but it’s white and super thick), which I apply 2 times a day, and it makes a world of difference. My rash has already improved by 80%.  I will probably still have a rash till I give birth, but at least the itching is under control.

Good Luck!

@sorrycharlie:  OP…did you ever find out what this is?  I am only FIFTEEN weeks, and I started getting tiny red bumps on my belly.  They’re not really itchy, unless I start touching them.
