Omg this stuff is very irritating! Has anyone else suffered from this? How do I get rid of it or at least calm the itching!

You can try Benadryl cream it's OTC but nothing helps and the only way to get rid of it is to give birth. Talk to your dr they might want to start you on steroids that's what they put me on when nothing else worked.

The only way I could cope was Benadryl and hydrocortisone cream.

Itchy bumps you get on your belly.

Its a pregnancy rash that grows in stretch marks and can spread all over your body. It doesn't sound bad, but its excruciating. And it only goes away from delivery.

That sound horrible. I've never experienced that but I do have some severe eczema. I take cook showers and moisturize often to sooth my itch. I hope that helps you out.

Unfortunately, it doesn't just STAY on your belly. It will most likely spread all over your body. I had it with my first pregnancy and it was awful! I found that it was at its worst at night. How long have you had it, and how far along are you?
pine tar soap was literally the only thing that remotely "helped" take away some of the itching but not much!

It's all over my belly. I'll be 38 weeks in two days. I've had it since 28 maybe 30 weeks.

Are you sure you have puppps? I had itchiness on my stomach during the last trimester also, but then when I hit 37 weeks I got Pupps and it quickly spread to my b**bs arms legs and sides. There is a HUGE difference between the two. It was like having hives. You should upload a picture

It's on my upper belly and in-between my breasts. My OB said it was PUPPPS.
