Risk of Twin Defects: 12 weeks is VERY early in the pregnancy and as such more subtle defects may not be apparent yet in Baby B.

Is atarax (hydroxyzine) right medicine ...for mosquito bite to my 7 months old baby ..as she got six to seven red rashess.. kind of little swelling with pimple.

If the bites don't bother her, leave them alone and they will resolve on their own. If she is very itchy and uncomfortable, see your doctor to make sure it is bug bites before you medicate an infant. ...Read more
