Diagnosed autoimmune urticaria and angiodema. Allergic to bendryll and zyrtec. What to do?

I recently became diagnosed as having chronic autoimmune urticaria and angiodema and i was taking benadryll until i saw an allergist and he gave me the diagnosis. he told me to start taking one zyrtec every day and now my fingers have swollen to the point to where i can barely bend them. I took hydrochlorothiazide to help thinking i was retaining water. it didnt help. What can i do????
