Allergic reactions are common during pregnancy, as throughout life. There is a large choice of antiallergic medications, but often, for pregnant women it is preferable to be more conservative and choose the older medications, that have safety evidence. This chapter includes information on antiallergic and desensitization pharmacotherapy during pregnancy.
