Greetings of the day

These are wheals (Utricaria) probabaly due to sensitivity developed for the drugs. Try taking anti histamines like Chlorpheneramine maleate and apply calamine lotion all over the body. These are safe in breast feeding mothers.

In case you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Wishing you happy and healthy life

Take Care

Best Regards
