PUPPS: There is a problem related to a rash that itches during pregnancy called pupps (pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy) and can be treated with topical Hydrocortisone cream. You can also take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help you sleep at night. Talk to your doctor about this as well.
