My itching started 10 days after giving birth to my son. my obgyn said it was not Pupp because “Pupp only occurs during prgnancy.” So I went to my family doctor and he said he had treated 3 cases of Pupp after delivery and he was sure what I had was Pupp. He prescribed prednisone for 7 days and the itch went away after day two. However 3 days after i finioshed the dosage, the itch came back. Its been two weeks since then and I am still itching. Hot compresses before bed seem to give me enough relief for me to fall asleep.
Oh Jenna, that sounds just awful. I’m so sorry you’re going through this. Have you seen a specialist for your eczema at all? It’s important to know that eczema is just an external expression of an internal problem – usually a gut bacteria imbalance. I would suggest finding yourself a naturopath who specializes in pediatric eczema, if at all possible. I also have another post here that talks about some other things we did to manage my (then) toddler’s eczema. Also another one here about my favorite products for treating eczema symptoms. Wishing you lots of love and healing!
