I have a horrible itchy allergy type rash appearing on my boobs and tummy :-( I think I am approx 7weeks pregnant. Anyone know if I can take anti-histamines?

No, you're not supposed to. I suffered hayfever with E and wasn't allowed them.

My anti- sickness tablets are actually anti-histamines but definitely need to check with dr first. Hope it soon goes

I was prescribed extremely strong ones at 16 weeks for an allergy but I would only take them if prescribed.

I asked my gp this as I normally take Loratadine. She said to try and avoid if I could as they recommend taking as little medication as possible, but if necessary Loratadine is on the 'safe' list.

Well a nurse from gp surgery eventually phoned me back. She didn't seem too worried but said no antihistamines and to go in tomorrow if its worse. Arrghh itchy itchy. H now home so I'm off for a cool shower

Is it any better HF?

Yes, thank you, its all completely gone - am sooo relived! I cant think of anything i ate or drank out of the ordinary, so i think it must have been caused by the dust created by the plasterers that were here Tues/Weds. Despite them clearing up and me hoovering the whole house did seem a bit dusty still.
