22 Weeks Along With Poison Sumac

I am on my 22 week of pregnancy and contracted poison sumac! My face for the last week has been inflamed, itchy and my eyes were almost swollen shut. I have been putting on topical hydrocortisone (1%) and taking benadryl when needed. Has anyone else gone through this or had to take these drugs during pregnancy?

I have not come into contact whith poison sumac, but I did have an allergy durring my last pregnancy. At 11 weeks I was told by my doctor to take hydrortisone and benadryl and my baby turned out perfectly fine and healthy also if your body has broken out in a rash due to this incident you might want to try Aveno oatmeal bath or the Aveno cream it took the itch off for a while.

I have had bad episodes of poison ivy every year for the past 5 years so I can sympathasize with the pain and agony. I can't imagine doing it while pregnant. i am sure if your doctor has prescribed this stuff it should be ok...
