just got stung (on the bottom!) by wasp and i put some antihistamine cream on. Was this a bad idea? I've washed it off now as a quick google said it shouldn't be used when bf.

I'm a pharmacist and I can't imagine it (while breastfeeding) if it was all 'i had to hand. (I say that cos I prefer Waspese myself)

Sorry, computer did a weird thing. That was supposed to read:I can't imagine it would be a problem at all. I would use some if it was all I had to hand.

Hope the wasp sting is not too stingy!!

Oh you poor thing! I got stung by a wasp as well on the back of the neck, and the pharmacist advised me to use antihistamine cream rather than tablets as I was bfing, so no cream won't be a problem.
