Should I call Poison Control?

I have a rash from my new laundry detergent. My arms are covered in little red bumps and they are itching like crazy.

I have a little dobber of benadryl anti itch liquid. I dabbed my arms with it- not a whole lot comes out of the dobber/dabber/mesh screen that depresses and soaks in liquid/whatever you want to call it.

About 20 minutes later I picked up my two month old baby, cradled her in my arms to breastfeed.

It's possible she could have gotten some on the side of her face.

Big fat, hmmm? is that really going to be bad? it's possible she didn't even get any on her. But if she did?

  • No, she will be fine. I hope your rash clears up soon.

  • After 20 minutes, it's already absorbed into your skin. She'll be fine.

  • oh gosh, what if it was only 10 minutes?

    I need to drink my coffee and clean the house. I am so frazzled.
