Re: benadryl and nursing - HELP

Sorry you got bit! Ouch!

Could you try something topical, rather than taking an antihistamine? A company called Boerke & Tafel makes something called Sss Sting Stop:

There's also this: Sting Soothe-- near the bottom of the page.

I've used both of these in the past with good results. I love Quantum's Sting Soothe.

I'd double check to make sure all ingredients are safe while nursing, but something topical like this would bring you faster relief. There's also Benadryl lotion and stuff.

I've always used a paste of baking soda and water on bug bites, and done pretty well, too.

I hope you feel better soon! I was bitten once by a horsefly and hated it.
Wagon? What wagon?!
