Thanks for the query.
You have developed a drug allergy.

Keep taking benadryl, this will help in controlling itch.

For the rash you can apply a mild steroid cream.

Mild steroids can be used during breast feeding,
so dont worry regarding that.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

you can ask a direct question to me on this forum, following the below link.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
