The Doctors share an image of a very inflamed and red stomach of a pregnant woman. It may look scary but OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry explains it is a very common condition called PUPPS.
PUPPS, pruritic urticarial papules in pregnancy, is an itchy rash that often occurs in the third trimester. It looks worse than it is. The mother and baby are both fine, it’s just more of an itchy annoyance! If there is itching and no rash, that’s actually a sign of a more serious condition called cholestasis of pregnancy that can be associated with intrauterine fetal demise.
Dr. Nita explains the red marks won’t scar and the doctor will be able to help control the itching.
