Anyone know anyone who's had PUPPP/PEP during pregnancy?

I had a bad case of PUPPP/ PEP during my pregnancy and also a relapse postpartum. It's supposed to affect 1 in 200 women. However, I dont know anyone who has had it ... in fact i dont know anyone who even knew what PUPPP is (Even the docters have a limited experience with PUPPP).

I've read about ppl having had it on the net .... but would like to hear from some "real" ppl about their experiences and especially those who have had two or more kids.

About PUPPP: Its terrible - it itches like crazy, there's no medicine (only symptom suppressors : steroids and antihistamines - not the best medicines during pregnancy or breast feeding ), no one knows why/how it occurs (MAY BE/COULD BE something to do with a mismatch with baby's cells when they enter the mother's body through the placenta, supposed to be more common when carrying a male child), its not infectious/ contagious, it lasts at least 3-4 weeks, it does not affect the baby in anyway ...but drives the mother raving mad .
The good things (bad things are not SO bad sometimes ) about it ...it does not spread on scratching and leaves no marks.
