OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry weighs in on an inflamed pregnant belly photo that you have seen circulating online. She says despite the shocking rash, the condition is actually quite common and something expecting moms do not usually need to worry about.
She says this rash is called pruritic urticarial papules (PUPPP). “It looks worse than it is,” she says, explaining that it is more annoyingly than alarming. She says the itchy rash usually occurs during the third trimester. She notes that mom and baby usually “do fine” when dealing with this.
Dr. Nita says it is more concerning when there is itching without the presence of a rash, which could be Cholestasis of Pregnancy, which can be associated with intrauterine fetal demise.
If you are experiencing PUPPP, she explains it will usually not have a lasting effect, noting that most women do not have any scarring from the rash.
