Airborne allergies, rashes on wrists, arms, legs. Taking hydrocortizone. Treatment?

i have had allergic reactions in the past in which a rash begins on my wrists and extremities and then moves up my arms and legs. It seems to show up on the more sensitive skin first and then spreads from there. Sometimes my throat begins to close up and I have to go to the hospital for a Hyrdrocortizone shot and 500MGs of Benadryl to bring it back down. This started last night, I took a bunch of benadryl last night, thought I had it under control, but it seems to be spreading again. I took all of the tests for allergys and all they could find was rag weed and other airborne allergies. I have not had this happen in 10 years. I think it is just a buildup over time, but would like your thoughts

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The causative agent may not be necessarily air borne - in can be ingested!
Is there anything new? - pets? carpets? / or something old meddled - air conditioner?
The diagnosis and treatment are proper indeed! It may be a question of time only.
They run their own course - with time, the body develops blocking antibodies and they may disappear.
If it is very troublesome and interfering with life style, a short course of oral STEROIDS may be tried - but they have their side effects and hence the hesitancy. Or DE-SENSITISATION may be tried – they are cumbersome, costly and not guaranteed
A different anti-histamine like levo-Cetrizine may be tried.
It may be combined with a leukotrine modifier like Montelukast

Take care
Wishing you speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Welcome to health care magic forum,
this is an allergic problem. as your history shows it is spreading like firstly it was on skin and now it is affecting to upper respiratory tract. and now not responding to same medication which are benefited previously. If it continue then it may spread to lower respiratory tract and prone to develop allergic asthma. medication you are taking has no curative effect but it relieve your complain temporary and then allowed it to spread more deeply.
to cure it permanent take homeopathic treatment. Allergy is 100% curable with homeopathy.
