Hi Zjaber,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The anaphylaxis is a life threatening phenomenon, you should remember the name of the painkiller and avoid it in future.
The dry mouth may be related to stress of surgery or the remnant allergic reaction.
You should take frequently the house hold liquid diets like warm soups/tea etc. Lemon water would also be good.
I would advise to continue tablet levocetirizine 5mg for 5 days to come.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
