In the event of a hives-only, but still troubling, allergic reaction, what can someone allergic to Benadryl (diphenhydramine) take? Don't wanna use an epipen for hives.

In brief: Hives

Depending on the extent of your hives, you may wish to seek medical help.
You can go to a walk in clinic or emergency room. I doubt your hives are from benadryl (diphenhydramine). Whatever prompted you to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may have been the cause of your hives.
