My name is Josie Minks and I'm a labor and delivery nurse in Austin, Texas and I'm here to talk about how to treat hives during pregnancy. Hives can often be a reaction to an allergen, either to a medication or a pollen or some other thing that you might be allergic to. So, it's important to determine if your body is reacting to an allergen, having an allergic reaction and if it might progress into something more, or if it's simply hives during pregnancy. Hives during pregnancy is not uncommon and it can be treated by an anti-histamine which would be Benadryl or a generic form of Benadryl or an anti-itch cream, which is a topical cream, goes on your skin, absorbs, and it can be very helpful in relieving some of the symptoms of hives during pregnancy.
