Natural Remedy for PUPPS

Have found that by adding bicarbonate of soda to my bath water and mixing a little into a paste with water and adding to the worst affected areas has been a godsend. This might help any of your other ladies suffering as i have been doing for weeks - oh the itching.

The blotching on my skin remains but no itching - last for a little over a day. Do a patch test in case the bicarb does not agree with you just in case 24 hours before. Rash goes alot redder straight after the bath but when dry is bliss. I hope this helps someone else as i was at the end of my tether and did not want to use steroid cream.

Had read bicarb was a natural remedy on the net and my mum said it used to be used to treat chicken pox - midwife said ok to use as well.

Take Care all

RE: Natural Remedy for PUPPS

Thanks Fee - I tried this for a few days about 10 days ago after reading it may help on the internet but, unfortunately, it didn't provide any relief for me :sadface:

I've been using the lowest dose hydrocortisone cream for a week now and the rash is sooooo much better. However, the previously unaffected areas (where I haven't been using the cream) have now had an outbreak - it's like the rash is escaping wherever it can! I have to go back to GP tomorrow so will see what he says about it - I really don't want to carry on using the cream but the alternative of potentially 8 more weeks of itchy rash & sleep deprivation is not a happy thought.
