allergies & breastfeeding? advice plz

Hey all, im going on holiday with my mum and lo in a couple of weeks and i get quite bad prickly heat, i also get really streaming eyes with the sun(due to hayfever), normal i get some antihystemin (not spelled right?) and eye drops and this normally helps however cos im breastfeeding he wont give me anything except some eye drops. i think im guna struggle with this as when i get prickly heat it flares up quite bad. has anyone else had this or similar and got any advice to help that will be safe?

  • I used to suffer from prickly heat until I read that it can be activated by the suncream which have colours and scents added to them. I started using Piz Buin sun allergy sun screen and have never had a problem since. Also prickly heat can be activated by the sun reacting with salt from the sea on your skin or chlorine from the pool. So when you go for a swim have a shower after and then apply more cream before sunbathing. I have recommended this to other people and it has worked for them as well.
    Hope this is helpful.
  • Thanks very much for that, i will be definately trying that out
