Hello. I'm new to this forum, recently diagnosed with CIU after 6 weeks of back and forth to the doctors and daily outbreaks/constant irritation.
When I was diagnosed my husband and I had currently been trying to conceive. My dermatologist has adivsed against this now due to the drugs necessary to try and keep the CIU at bay.
Has anyone here been pregnant with CIU or been pregnant and taken antihistamines regulary?
At the moment I'm on 40mg of cetirizine daily plus 50-75mg of a sedating antihistamine at night. Have also tried a short course of steriods (prednisone) and ranitidine but neither helped and my current medication is not preventing the several times a day outbreaks either.
I'm really trying to decide if I could go the first trimester of pregnancy without anything and just try to get through the 90 days and then be able to take small doses of loratidine or cetirizine for the remainder of the pregnancy or if I am going to have to give up the idea of another baby altogether.
Any experiences surrounding this would be great to hear
