    Itching non-stop after Allergic Reaction

    I am allergic to wheat, soy, peanuts and most grass outside. 2 days ago I had another reaction, not sure from what, and as soon as I realized that I was itching all over (especially hands), I noticed hives appearing around my mouth and my hands and feet swelling, I took benadryl. 15 minutes later I was much better. However, since then, I've been having a feeling that something is crawling all over my body NON-STOP! It is very itchy and uncomfortable. It feels prickly on and off, through out my entire body. I do not have any rashes anywhere....it's just VERY itchy.

    I did not visit my doctor. I've only been taking benadryl but that itchy feeling is still here.

    What should I do?

    Try Zyrtec. It's pretty could for rashes and hives.

    I used to get that and I took a bath with baking soda. (Mostly because I'm cheap....) The baking soda seemed to relieve the itching. The hives will eventually go away as long as you stay out of contact with whatever is causing the allergy, but have you had allergy testing?

    There are several causes of hives, and in many cases, the cause is never found. If the cause of your hives can not be learned, and the trigger can not be kept off. It is better to find out the cause and then medication. Antihistamines generally serve good for treating hives with less side effects than that of adrenal cortical steroids..
