If no shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, tongue or lip swelling, can give Diphenhydramine (benadryl) for tonight and call doc in morning. Make list of any new foods and/or exposures in past few days to try and pinpoint possible allergens. If having any respiratory problems, feels like can't breath, seek care tonight.
