If having shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, call 911 immediately & inform your ob. There are many antibiotics which can safely be substituted in pregnancy. Let your OB decide if allergy or just a rxn. ...Read more

Hand in hand: This has been known as "pudic erythema": a reaction to emotion/embarrassment, usually. It's perceived as "hyperexcitability of vaso-motor nerves" and can go hand in hand with urticarial (hives) reactions - a form of allergic reaction that can happen idiosyncratically (individual/unique to each person), like may be with strawberry wine. So, there is a correlation. Mention it to your primary md. ...Read more
