Time: Antihistamines such as benadryl, (diphenhydramine) claritin, zyrtec or Allegra will gradually be metabolized naturally by the body by 3 to 5 days. Some of the previous antihistamines (now not currently available could have taken up to 6 weeks). There is no specific "treatment" other than time unless a recent large overdose occurred and this should be evaluated in the er.

A 33-year-old member asked:

What changes can I expect in my body in the second trimester?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Kristina McCaughtry

Quite a few: In the second trimester, the baby continues to grow, making room for itself by pushing your organs out of the way. So your abdomen will enlarge, and towards the third trimester other problems like hemorrhoids, heartburn and back pain may result. "what to expect when expecting" is one of many good prenatal education books to consider reading for more information.

What can I do during pregnancy to remove the appearance of stretch marks?

Dr. Jeff Livingston

Not much you can do : Stretch marks are common and genetics play a big role. If your mom had them you probably will too. You can change your "jeans" but not your "genes." try not to gain more than the recommended amounts of weight. Many people use over-the-counter skin lotion. This keeps the skin healthy and decreases itching but may not prevent stretch marks.
