Hives: Remove the causative stimulating agent, if known. Try topical Benadryl or Hydrocortisone and strongly consider addind oral antihistamines into the mix.

Had severe hives, itching, redness&swelling. Got an epi pen injection@urgent care, hives went away&came back.What's next step? Pcp, allergy test, etc?
Antihistamine: Unless you have respiratory problem or going into shock, Epinephrine is not that usual treatment. Try taking antihistamine up to 4 times per day and see if this helps. If not, consult your doctor to see if Prednisone may be needed. Usually we don't do a workup unless the hives have been present for more than 6- 8 weeks. ...Read more
Pneumonia vac PPV23 Thurs. Swelling & redness much reduced, tender but itches. RN @ clinic said 2 Benadryl. Hydroxyzine 10mg ok instead?

These have caused many accidents even when people did not feel sleepy. For itch, rub in some cortisone, preferably prescription strength. If you want antihistamine, get Claritin, Allegra, Zyrtec. But you just need t ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Live in mid-fl. In yard clearing brush when bit on back of neck. After 24 hrs, swelling as big as silver dollar, still itches. Am anaphylaxic?

I don't see you mention about problems breathing, diffused rashes or hives, and abdominal pain other GI symptoms so you don't have anaphylaxis. The bite site can last for a few days. Try warm compress. If it get worse, you might have cellulitis and need to be seen by a physician. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Random swelling on skin, kinda itches and it's smooth when i rub it. It randomly appeared. What is this? And what causes it?
See a dermatologist: Possibly dermographism. Annoying, not serious.Get a more detailed answer ›
Rash: People often want to assume it is a bug bite when that is not always the case. A rash is best evaluated in person by a doctor who can truly determine if a biopsy or specific treatment is needed. Many insect bites/stings can lead to the reaction you describe but it would be best to have your doctor look at it. ...Read more
