Dear friend, welcome to Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- http://bit.ly/Dr-Prasad-Akole) and am glad to address to your query here.
No. it is not due to Benadryl
You have an allergenic reaction and Benadryl has anti-allergic properties. It helped and now the symptoms have appeared due to disappearance of Benadryl from the system.
If you have breathing difficulty, giddiness, spreading hives or redness, cough, please go to ER/ doctor to rule out serious signs like low BP or bronchospasm
Oral non-sedating anti-allergics and steroids would suffice the minor symptoms.
Benadryl can cause drowsiness
, so 3 a day dosing may not be possible for a working person.
may be had under medical supervision.
Benadryl is OK till then (do not drive with it in).
local creame is not very useful.
Try to find out and avoid what is causing it.
