Is there a particular oil that you preferred over the others?
I think olive oil and mango body butter were my go-tos

Re: Possible PUPPS

I have it pretty bad and I'm on some oral meds and super strong steriod cream. The derm. didn't even want to give it to me until my doctor seen all my scabs ALL OVER MY BODY from itching, she finally gave in. It's helping.....a lot. I find staying cool helps a ton and peppermint lotion all day long. I only use the cream 2x a day after showering.

It really really really sucks. This is pregnancy #5 and my first case of PUPPS!

Re: Possible PUPPS

I've had it since I was 12w. I am one of those rare, have it almost all pregnancy people. I am using pine tar soap, triamcinolone cream, & claritin to help.
