However, I would recommend that you contact your physician because your Benadryl (diphenhydramine) many need to be changed to a short Prednisone taper if there has not been improvement on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) alone. ...Read more

I have a latex allergy when I have a reaction, should use epipen if I have a rash and hives and itchiness on my face? Or try Benadryl (diphenhydramine)? No SOB

I have a latex allergy when I have a reaction, should use epipen if I have a rash and hives and itchiness on my face? Or try Benadryl (diphenhydramine)? No SOB

NO and NO: Since you do not get anaphylaxis, you should not use epi. Why do you have it? Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a sleeping pill and not a good antihistamine. Cetirizine [Zyrtec] is superior and not likely to make you sleepy. Sometimes people take 2 or 3 but usually 1 pill lasts all day. ...Read more
