    suffering from PUPPP

    Hi
    I am 23 weeks and have been told that I have PUPPP. It is a horrible itchy rash that only pregnant women get. I have it from my scalp all the way to my feet. I have tried coco butter, coco oil, Vaseline,lotion, calamine lotion and Benadryl. I finally went to the dermatologist and he gave me a steroid cream that seems to be working but I try not to use it too much. It has gotten a little better but now I have ugly scars and discoloration. Has any one else had this and will the scars fade?

    Thanks
