My excema is playing up and I normally take piriton, can I do this while bf'ing. I'm worried about drowsiness.

I was prescribed Cetirizine - not sure if that's any use for eczema though.

Cetirizine is what I normally take so its good to know I can it - its mentioned in the link as being safe as well.

Thanks smile

i have taken piriton whilst bfeeding all four of my boys and am currently taking it when preg with baby no 5, i will take it when bfeeding this one as well.

i also take it for eczema and have been told its the safest one to take in preg/bfeeding
