Good day mommies!
My son just turned 1 this month and i have been exclusively breastfeeding him since his birth. My problem is i usually break out in hives lately and it started when my son was only 4 months old. Nothing changed on the food i ate and i never had any history of food allergies. I assumed that it could be my progesterone only pills ( EXLUTON ) that i have been taking since my son was 2 months old. So stopped taking the pill for 4 months now but the hives won't go away.
My OB GYN recommended me to take VIRLIX to relieve the hives. It goes away for about 4-5 days and i would take it again.
Could my hives be related to breastfeeding? am i allergic to breastfeeding? is VIRLIX safe for my baby? or are there other options for me to take?
I need help mommies. Thanks! :)
