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.
I had what was called by doctors an eczema for almost two years, the only way of avoing that my face became full of a painful and odd locking rash (I cant even describe it) was to use creams with steroids or cortisone witch even doctors say it cant be use for a long period of time because causes the skin to became thinner and thinner. I had no other choice to continuously use it because the rash is unbearable. The steroid creams didn't let the rash appear (only if I stopped them for 3 days) but my nose area become to 'peel off' for almost 2 months continuously and with visible dry looking skin peeling off in some areas of the nose that not even Vaseline could help not showing.
