Needs Face to face: EXAM by the Physician. Or Video Consult via health Tap Prime. You may need Stronger Treatment than just Anti Histaminic . e.g. Oral or Injectable Steroids. Or may be Topical Steroids if very localized Eczema Flare up.

See a derm: sorry to hear you are going through this. it sounds like you may be allergic to zyrtec. Have you tried allegra, (fexofenadine) which is not sedating?
