In brief: Pregnancy rash
Polymorphic eruption of pregnancy is an itchy rash that commonly begins on the abdomen, particularly within stretch marks (striae).
It most usually develops during late pregnancy (third trimester) but can also start immediately after the baby is born. It was previously known as puppp (pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy) but this name has been abandoned as it caused confusion.
