Doctor insights on:
Had allergic reaction to Minocycline. Hives, heartburn, chills, feeling ill. Took prednisone/benadryl. Hives gone for 4 days, why am I still itchy?
Inflammation: !st drug such as minocycline tends to linger on in the tissue longer. 2nd the inflammation triggered by the drug takes 1-2 weeks to resolve even after the drug has been discontinued. Think of it as a deep scratch on your skin, it won't heal immediately just because you have stopped scratching it. ...Read more
I have true allergy to Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (hives.) is dramamine ok? It has either meclizine or dimenhydrinate, depending on which type i get. Both these ok?
A day after i took 2000mg of chromium accidentally i developed hives that come n go 3 days now n still getting hives Benadryl (diphenhydramine) isn't helping?
I am currently taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for hives, but it makes me feel very strange, even though it helps with my allergies. What can I do to stop it?
Hives: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is short-acting and causes drowsiness. During the daytime, switch to a non-sedating antihistamine like Allegra or zyrtec (generic is fine) and take it twice per day to keep the hives under better control. Reserve the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for bedtime with breakthrough itching or hives. ...Read more
I am allergic to hay, each allergy attack causes red spots and hives. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) gets rid of the hives but not the red dots. How can I get rid of them?
Avoid hay: unless you have no other option, which is difficult to imagine; this is your best bet. You can also try taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or perhaps a nonsedating antihistamine such Zyrtec prior to exposure to hay. It is probably easier to prevent the allergic reaction then to try to get rid of the red dots after it occurs. Hydrocortisone cream in combination with a good moisturizer might be helpful. ...Read more
Daughter has hives and her feet are swollen. She has taken Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and hives are getting better but she is still not able to walk because of her feet?
I have true allergy to Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (had hives when taking the dye-free for a headache.) is allegra safe for me? And would it help my allergic reactions?
Yes: Allergy to Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is rare if at all present. Allegra is quite different from Benadryl (diphenhydramine) in structure and thus should be safe for you. Make sure you are not allergic to the gelatin on the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) capsules. Whether Allegra would work for you or not is another issue but it should be no less effective than benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more
