Yes: These are signs of an allergic reaction, please see the Emergency Department. If you have an anti histamine, please take a dose and bring the medication with you.

Now: You should seek care care now. If you can not see your doctor and the symptoms worsen, go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital. 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,

Now: Your symptoms now are significant enough to seek medical attention. The next problem could be throat swelling and then trouble breathing. I would suggest Benadryl twenty five to fifty milligrams and have someone take you to an urgent care or ER and I would go now good lucks

Reaction: Try some Benadryl, 50 mg would be a good dose. If that does not help see a doctor especially if your throat gets wjorse or you are getting breathless.
