You can, but...: ...Whether it works will depend on the cause. If it's due to a yeast infection, for example, the effect will be temporary at best. Still, it won't hurt to try, and if it doesn't work, see your doctor and find out the cause.

I started itching and have hives, took a allegra at 3:30 am, applied Benadryl (diphenhydramine) ant-itch cream this morning. Noticed hives now can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tablet?
