Dr told me to give my 6 month son who weighs 19.4 lbs 3/4teaspoon benadryl for rash/hives is that ok?

Yes

Urticaria
This should be ok since patients with hives often need an even higher dose.

I'm on Xanax for 7 yrs @ 2 mg a day. My Dr. said Benadryl and phenobarbital for 10 days is all I need to detox. Is that realistic?

Unlikely

Xanax
benzodiazepenes can be difficult to come off of. Usually we recommend reducing the dose slowly - 10% per week.

inside mu ear is swollen an painful.i also have earwax draining from it.i cant see my dr for a while,will benadryl or claritin help?

Probably not...

Head-ear
It sounds like you have an external ear infection, or otitis externa...it is unlikely that this is just an allergic reaction for which antihistamines would work for. I would see a doctor without delay. In some cases, a local infection near or in the ear can spread rapidly.

Dr. John T. Chiu answered:

The dr prescribed me tussonex for my cough...she also told me to get some sleep tonight to take a Benadryl....is it ok to take together?

Yes but

Diphenhydramine
Tussionex often makes one drowsy without anything else. I would suggest that you try Tussionex alone for the first night before adding Benadryl. At any rate, this should not be a long-term treatment.

Dr. Dheeraj Raina answered:

Can my mom take phenobarbital and Benadryl? Dr took her off Xanax today and now on pheno instead but still can't sleep. Any recommendations?

Second opinion

Phenobarbital
Take your mom to a sleep specialist to get a second opinion...It's relatively uncommon to treat sleep problems with phenobarbital these days. So when that happens, the important question is - why is this person having such difficulty with sleep that the doctor has to resort to phenobarbital? A sleep specialist is usually in the best position to answer that.

Yes

Motrin
Have her seen. She may have allergies but she could have a virus or be developing a sinus infection.

My baby is 8 months old and weighs 23 pounds(big boy) a Dr. At urgent care told me to give him Benadryl .5ml, he is not my normal Dr. , is this ok?

Benadryl

Diphenhydramine
That dose is appropriate. If its to reduce some cough, congestion and runny nose, I would also use nasal saline spray/drop along with bulb suction of the nose or Nosedrida.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

Sudden hives. Ate no new food. Been taking cephalexin 2 wks & sulfameth/trimemethoprim for 5 ds & Culturelle probiotic for 3 ds. Benadryl or go to DR?

Sulfa allergy?

Probiotic
Talk to doc in am. New hives on Abx with known potential for rashes is strong evidence that they are the cause. My bet: sulfameth/trimothoprim. Should be very sure that antibiotics are necessary and that they need to be continued. Benadryl for now unless you develop serious signs or symptoms in which case ED is the right choice.

Strep+amoxicillin=6days itchy rash=allergy.7days ago-amox+benadryl=itchy.3days ago-bendryl+60-10mg each day prednisone+hydroxyzine=itchy Call dr? ×rx?

Possibly amox

Amoxil
Amoxicillin not commonly causes a skin rash but I cannot tell whether your rash started before or after you started taking amoxicillin. Strep infection may rarely cause a rash as well. Yes, do call your doctor.
