Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

I think you will just be fine. You are simply just hyperreacting to the allergic reaction. Just try to stay calm and worry less. If within the next couple of days, you still have same tremors, you will have to consult with a specialist (neurologist) who will take a closer look at this. Benadryl is an antihistamine, that can be effective in situations of allergy.

Hope this was helpful and wish you the best.
