Hello,

The exact cause of PUPPP rash isn't known. It is recommended to use chamomile and peppermint which can be helpful. You can apply itch-relieving moisturizers to your skin as much as relieves your discomfort. I also suggest using antihistamines to relieve the itching.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
