In brief: Caladryl Not known

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is categoryb which considered safe during pregnancy, but caladryl is not known.
It is an otc topical and if you are now in your second or third trimester, it is a safer time to use if needed. It is concerning during first trimester because organs are being formed and thus higher risk of birth defects. Consult doc if you need meds. Congrats on the pregnancy and good luck.
