Can Benadryl (diphenhydramine) help a swelling and hive reaction (itching) allergic reaction to penicillin?

Neosporin: Neosporin is a very common allergen, as is Bacitracin (both are very commonly used). Interestingly, neither is better than vaseline at preventing infection, but both are usually better at treating one.

If I have a nut allergy n eat something w walnut leaf oil can I hve an allergic reaction such as a migrain? Isamigrain a form of an allergic reaction?
Not usually: However nasal congestion can trigger migraine (at least in my experience).

Hives look and feel like mosquito bites--they are raised, red, itchy, round to oval and can be of various sizes, scattered on the body.
