Hello
thanks for using Health Care magic .

I would be pleased to answer your question

There is a tablet called Dexchlorpheniramine (Polaramine) . This is an anti histamine which is very effective and safe in pregnancy . It will not harm the pregnancy nor will it harm the baby .
We give it to all our patients of pregnancy and itching .

Thanks and take care and Good Luck .

Hi,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Itching in pregnancy is due to increased bile salts in blood and is not dangerous and will reside on its own.

Taking avil during pregnancy is not a good idea,I would recommend you to stop the tablet soon and apply Calamine lotion which relieves the itching.

Wish you the best.
