In brief: Allergic Rxns??

U need to describe ur allergic rxn! is it just basic allergies or is it cough/swelling/shortness of breath, hives (eg.
. Anaphylaxis)?!?! you really need to be more specific before any medication recommendation should be provided.

In brief: Antihistamines

There are many over-the-counter medications for allergies.
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is one of the best, but makes most people sleepy. Some of the newer antihistamines will make you less sleepy, but may not work as fast.
