If you are having any respiratory symptoms like shortness of breath or throat swelling, you should be evaluated in the er.

In brief: Try hytone (hydrocortisone) cream
Of course you should first try to determine the cause.
.... If not severe(ie. No blisters , painful redness etc)try plain cortisone cream ..And take antihistamines....Not Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream or any product containing benadryl (diphenhydramine).
