Allergy- bottle-neck jerseys-.. allergex tablets
Hi ladies

i am 8 weeks preggies, and I've developed a very itchy rash/"patches" on my neck, and some were even no my face (around the mouth), but they went away after i started taking allergex tablets. Someone said i could be having an allergic reaction to wool, coz I wear a lot of bottle-neck jerseys, etc.. and to be honest, when I don't wear any bottle-necks, it gets better.. now my question is: is it safe to keep taking the tablets even when I'm preggies?

PS: I've had this rash before- a while back, and the dr gave me the same allergex, hence I don't see the point of waiting R100, whereas I can buy the pills for R6 at the chermist.

Thanking you in anticipation.

A topical cream would be a better idea.
