Welcome to Health care Magic.

I have gone through your query. I too would suggest taking the same medicine Cetzine 10mg as your doctor prescribed. Cetzine contains Cetrizine which is absolutely safe during pregnancy. There is no second thought about that. Your child is will not be effected by the usage of Cetzine. You can rest assured.

You can also try lotions containing calamine and liquid paraffin (eg., CALAPURE lotion). Which would relieve you from the irritation due to allergy

As far as the allergy is concerned the causative allergen ( Triggering factor) should be detected.
You can just list down what are all the things that cause you allergy-may be dust or pollen or having some foods. you can find out yourself which is the substance that is causing your allergy often. If it is found avoiding that would solve your problem.

Dont worry about the child. The child is going to really really fine.

Wish a happy and healthy pregnancy

Take care
