Can Benadryl (diphenhydramine) help relieve itching from dyshidriotic excema - it itches so bad, right in between my fingers :p?
NO!!!!!: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a sleeping pill. It will make you sleepy. Even if you do not feel sleepy you are prone to accidents, same as alcohol. It will do nothing for your itch or your dermatitis. A potent steroid cream or gel will help you & is safe. Sometimes a few doses of oral steroid are useful, such as Prednisone 20mg alternate days for 3-5 doses. Usually it responds to clobetasol cream. ...Read more

Call your doctor: If it continues, it will need to be seen. This may be a reaction to the vaccine. Even if it resolves, it's a good idea to call the office where you received the shot. This would be considered an "adverse event". The cdc collects data on these events to monitor vaccine safety, and calculate the risks of side effects. ...Read more
Why I breakout with welts on my forearm it itches too what can it be I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) it goes away sometimes but what can it be it comes and goes?
Many causes: If Benadryl (diphenhydramine) controlled it, then it is not contact dermatitis in the true sense. If the hives are confined to the forearms, then it may be from something you are using on your forearm especially when they don't involve the other exposed areas of the body (which would have suggested a link to sun exposure). Consider seeing a dermatologist. ...Read more

Drug reaction : Itching could be considered a drug reaction . It may become worse the next time you take the medication . You may even get a rash . I csn't predict how your body is going to react . It does not make sense to use another drug , which may be sedating to counteract the side effect of another drug . Ask your doctor to switch you to something else or use OTC Meds if you can control your pain . ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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?
Yes, but...: The Allegra (fexofenadine) is a long acting, non-sedating anti-histimine. If the itching hasn't been controlled, it is ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) which is a short acting and sedating anti-histimine- so be aware of the potential for drowsiness.....Limit the Benadryl to one or two tablets per day, if continuing the allegra (fexofenadine). ...Read more
