Allergic reaction to HIDA scan meds?

I had a HIDA scan done of my gallbladder on monday, and they gave me nuclear medicine, Kinevac I think. Well on the same arm that they gave me this medicine, but not at the injection site, Wednesday I developed some raised itchy bumps on my pinky. Well all wednesday night I was kept up with itching. These bumps are all on the palm of my hand, the pinky and the ring finger and are spreading to the middle finger. They itch profusely!!! I was wondering if this may be an allergic reaction to the medicine, or if anyone has had anything like it. These bumps are definitely raised and plentiful. THey aren't really red, but just skin color. Any advice is appreciated. I am taking benadryl orally, and also putting a benadryl cream on it which dulls the itch so I can sleep some.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Allergic reaction to HIDA scan meds?

Are they tiny? If so, it sounds like a stress related thing I get. Dermotologist says there isn't anything much to do about them except lower the stress.
