Hi, I am 24wks pregnant (first pregnancy) and was diagnosed with PUPPPS last week. The itching and burning is so intense and is everywhere but my face. I am on methylprednisolone but it is not working, have also tried corticosteroid creams, and OTC lotions. Nothing works! I have not slept much and this is my 7th day with it. I have heard that the herbal remedy Dandelion Root can be very effective. I am desperate for this herb safe to use? Anyone have any other suggestions?

Hi there - These are just.plain.miserable. I am so sorry you are going through this. clobetasol (Temovate) or betamethasone (Diplrolene) are the two other drugs that I know of that you can try through your doctor. Aveeno Oatmeal baths can help and how about Calamine Lotion?  Have you tried that.  Grandpa's Pine Tar soap I hear works really well.  Also A & D Ointment helps.

I would use herbs -- try those first.
