  • Appreciate Video clip! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard about Mackorny Smooth Penile Blueprint (probably on Google)? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for Removing Pearly Penile Papules minus the headache. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my cooworker at last got astronomical results with it.

  • I use Vaseline (petroleum jelly) and or sudocream. I would first rinse the area with cold water as it does soothes, and make sure to dry thoroughly and I stopped wearing underwear to bed to help with ventilation.

  • Worse than it really is?! Obviously you e never had a rash during pregnancy. Up all night because the itch is so intense and nothing soothes it. Then up all day because you have a family to care for. Unable to wear most clothing due to the fabric causing pain. Or the looks on the faces of strangers at the sight of your blistered skin. Don’t brush this off as if it isn’t a big deal. I assure you, if you happen to ever have a patient with any form of puppps, it IS a big deal to them. I wound up delivering at 36 weeks due to iugr, which is thought to have been caused by the pemphigoid gestationis I had developed.

  • I am 14 weeks pregnant then I feel excruciating itch during night time in my palm and sole of the feet..is this cholestasis already?
