Hives I think

I woke up in middle of night with heart burn, I took two tums. I have taken tums before. I started with mouth and throat itching with a cough, then my whole body started to itch, I have little bums like bug bites all over legs, feet and back and tummy. I also have diarreha. I am 34 wks. preg. can I take something? Like benedryl?

  • ive heard you can take benadryl but hives are more of welts and not bug bite looking....

    they are mishaped and odd shaped and not just a bump like thing..

    but i am pretty sure you can take benadryl.

  • Called L&D and they say is should be ok to take Benedryl. I never have a allergic reaction to TUMS before even the generic kind. I am to just make sure baby is moving first before taking. Hopefully wears off before I have to wake up to go to work in 2hrs.
