Yes: If you are exposed to the item to which you are allergic, the symptoms will persist, even for years. It would be prudent to consult your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine

Allergic reaction,: benadryl could be helpful. If having difficulty breathing, go to urgent care/ER for possible severe allergic reaction.

Itchy bumps: You may have a parasite or itch mite infection. Have you seen a dermatologist? Keep searching for the cause.
