Call your M.D.: Asap. Observe as well if you are having difficulty of breathing due to narrowing of nasal passages. Fastest treatment is usually corticosteroid to block the histamines if dyphenhydramine isn't enough.

Steroids maybe: Any drug induced rash could develop into something much worse, especially if the drug is continued. 1st step is to stop the drug asap. Sulfa is notorious for being a possible cause of a serious drug rash called stevens johnson syndrome. Call your doctor to get checked for this. Eye problems and serious burn-like rashes are possible. Steroids may be needed.
