PUPPS - pregnancy hives like rash on stomach / back / chest

I am 27 weeks pregnant with my first. For the past 2 months I've had a hives like rash on my trunk. Red raised bumps, that itches, and burns. It flares up with heat - working out, showers, scratching, itching, touching. It feels better with cold (rubbing ice on it / cold showers, baths) I have never had allergies to food - just seasonal pollen. I did just get a blood test done to see what food allergies / sensitivities I have that could be causing this - although the results won't be in until next week. My question is, is Hyland's Hives Tablets safe for me to take during pregnancy - the ingredient list is: Apis Mellifica 3X HPUS, Urtica Urens 3X HPUS, Natrum Muriaticum 6X HPUS, Arsenicum Album 6X

Or do you recommend anything else? When I googled each individual ingredient - I found a post on this website that possibly Arsenic Album 6x might not be safe?

Any help would be greatly appreciated - I had a hard time finding a homeopath where I live - and the one that I called was $500 and I just don't have that to spend right now : (

Thank you Thank you Thank you

x potency is not very safe for drugs like apis or ars during pregnancy. You may take Apis 30C twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects.

30C potency is also known as just 30. i.e. Apis 30C and Apis 30 are one and the same.

i tried apis 30 c about a month ago - and it didn't seem to work - should i try it again? how long do you need to take it for? what about urtica urens 30c or sulfur 30c or histaminum hydrochloricum?

You may try the following remedies one by one.

carbo veg 30
caladium 30
kreosotum 30
belladonna 30
sulphur 30

You may take the remedy twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects over next 3 days.
