they shouldn't affect the baby, but remember if something were to happen, you must live for them to live so at this point, your most basic needs come first...I also have severe reactions to a few antibiotics and yes, it's scary, the worst of it is over for you and it should be smooth sailing from here.

Have you tried just benadryl for the morning sickness? It's always helped me wonderfully

not sure anyone else mentioned this, in a rush- first exposure does not result in an allergic reaction. It's always the 2nd or subsequent exposure. Don't take it again because your reaction can get worse.

Yes Mama! I broke out after I took my second ever pill of Zofran.

Steriods are also used in some mamas with severe Hyperemesis. I say in your case the benefits outweigh the risks and you should be fine with a 5 day taper. I had to use steriods during a pregnancy for severe asthma for ab extended time and everything was fine.

Hope you start feeling better!
