Benadryl...which will make you drowsy. Nothing else by mouth can be taken when you're pregnant. Tacnu and calagel also work great. I am in my fifth month of pregnancy, and these were the options given to me. Everything else contains steroids, which could endanger the baby. Also, baking soda baths are great! For the most part, you can only relieve the burning/itching. It has to run it's course.
