Living With PUPPP Rash

A Natural Approach To Health


Living With PUPPP Rash

I had a question the other day about PUPPP rash.

PUPPP stands for “pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy.”

It occurs in 1 of every 150 pregnancies.

PUPPP is an itchy, bumpy rash usually developing on your abdomen near the umbilical area and spreading to your thighs and extremities.

It’s most common in first-time mothers and those carrying multiples.

Sometimes the itching can become very severe and spread to the rest of your body, but never on your face (thank goodness).

Fortunately, PUPPP poses no risk for your baby.

No one’s really sure what causes PUPPP.

Unlike most other symptoms of pregnancy, it doesn’t appear to be the result of increased hormone levels.

To deal with PUPPP rash it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily as it hydrates body and brain cells, thins mucus, and flushes toxins.
*Alfalfa is a good source of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin K, which is essential for normal blood clotting.
*Red raspberry leaf tea is very helpful.
*Avoid the following herbs:  aloe vera (internally), angelica, arnica, barberry, black cohosh, bloodroot, cat’s claw, celandine, cottonwood bark, dong quai, feverfew, ginseng, goldenseal, lobelia, myrrh, Oregon grape, pennyroyal, rue, sage, saw palmetto, tansy, and turmeric.  Use caution when taking any herbs during pregnancy, especially in the first 12 weeks.
*Eat a well-balanced, nutritious diet and be sure to get moderate exercise, fresh air, and plenty of rest.
*Eat a lot of vegetables.
*Don’t eat junk food, fried foods, or too much coffee.
*Avoid eating rare, undercooked, or raw meat, poultry or fish.
*Don’t use anything with phenylalanine or aspartame in it (Equal, NutraSweet, etc.).
*Don’t take mineral oil.
*Increase Omega3/omega6 essential fats.
*Keep a balanced pH.
*Use Enfuselle skin care products.
*Tea Tree Oil is an antibacterial topical treatment.
*Epsom salts baths may be beneficial/soothing.
*Consider liver and/or colon cleanses, fasting, and/or juicing.
*Review my post on candida.
*Consider aloe vera directly on the rash (gel from inside fresh leaves is best).
*Eliminate toxic personal care, laundry and cleaning products.
*Eliminate personal care products that upset skin’s natural pH.
*Don’t smoke, consume alcohol in any form, or use drugs, except as prescribed by your health care provider.
*Decrease exposure to chlorinated shower/bath water, pools and hot tubs.
*Improve your digestion and elimination processes.
*Discover allergies/sensitivities (food and/or environmental) that may trigger or aggravate condition.
*Eliminate free radical damage.
