Ceterizine and Microgynon

Hi, I m 22 and have been on the contraceptive pill Microgynon 30 for 4 years. I recently started taking ceterizine tablets twice a day because of a severe reaction to mosquito bites. Will this affect the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill? Also, is there anything else I can take to reduce the itching/swelling of the mosquito bites?
