I suspect an allergy to Benadryl (diphenhydramine) altho it's rare. Is there a test for this type of allergy to confirm? I get hives.

In brief: Just avoid

There are other antihistamines. Hives develop from a signal from the brain to histamine releasing cells in the skin. It is often a cause from poor diet, especially sugar.
