Bug / insect bites with allergic reaction. Can i take hydrocortisone and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to cure?
That's curious....: Allergic reactions are when the body's immune system detect something that it recognizes as a foreign substance (ingested, contact through skin, food or medicine, or in the case of auto-immure diseases, it's own cells). One reax is to mobilize cells that secrete anti-histamines to fight the allergic reax. So, allergic relax to antihistamine would be very unusual.

I take celebrex (celecoxib) with no problem. When i take aleve, advil, motrin, i break out in hives. Aren't they all nsaids? Am i alergic?

I've had a few small hives after taking ibuprofen and aspirin. Can i try aleve/naproxen? Never had swelling, breathing issues and don't have asthma.
Uncertain: There is a condition known as aspirin (NSAID) sensitive hives and angioedema in which all NSAIDs (other COX-2 specific ones) may cause the same symptoms . On the other hand some experts consider hives being an allergic reaction to that specific NSAID and cross-sensitivity does not happen.

I usually recommend using a once daily antihistamine such as claritin, zyrtec, or allegra, and using the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) when the hives break through. I will sometimes add h2 blocker such as zantac or pepcid, which also act as antihistamines. ...Read more
