Pregnant. Itchy throat, cough, vomiting. Should I take Benedryl or Loratadine?

40 yof, 23 weeks 5 days pregnant. Severe itchy throat which leads to cough which leads to wetting myself and vomiting . I have tried essential oils , salt water gargles, throat lozenges, throat sprays and nothing seems to kick it. Saw my OB yesterday and they did not seem concerned. Any other suggestions? I was thinking maybe Benedryl or Loratadine 10 mg tablets, but I am unsure if this is ok to take and try.
