I had PUPPP too with my first pregnancy, in third trimester. Went to GP who said it was foliculitis!! I suffered with itching and horrible blisters on my feet. Not a good experience. I went to dermatologist who gave me creams which cleared up the rash in time for me to deliver C section. Baby was perfect but I had flair ups after baby was born. They say 1 in 60 000 woman get it if pregnant with a boy. And I am in ''remission'' now. I am currently 6 months pregnant with a girl I don''t think/hope I don''t get PUPPP again.
