What is a good drug store medicine for an allergic reaction? I have redness on my eyelids and a lot of red bumps all over my face.

Benedryl. Benadryl or the generic called "diphenhydramine" is often the drug store's own brand of allergy medicine.

If it does not help or the reaction gets worse or you start to have any trouble swallowing, go to the er asap for help.
