I am allergic to poison ivy. As a child, it would close up my eyes, mouth, web up my finger and toes, and just make me miserable.

I got poison ivy on my face, while weedwhacking yesterday. It is around both eyes and on the outside of my mouth, lip and kinda on the inside of my mouth.

My question is:

Is pretnizone safe to take while breastfeeding? I dont want to pass am unsafe amount of steriods to my 8 month old.

Thanks for any replies, my dr is going to call me back today (hopefully).
