In brief: Allergy or ananphyla

For allergy you need antihistamine and corticosteroids.
However, in an anaphylaxis kit you need epinephrine, antihistamine, corticosteroid, fluids, airway protection device, IV start kit and a tourniquet.

In brief: Depends

It depends on what and how severe your allergies are.
For most households i would recommend the following: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tablet or liquid, Hydrocortisone cream, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) gel, zyrtec tablet or liquid. If you have serious problems with insect stings keep an Epipen injection. If yu have asthma carry an albuterol inhaler.
