Hello, I have been breaking out in a skin rash;
Claritin Or Zyrtec...
Benadryl contains a first generation antihistamine. This class of antihistamines are sedating. I would try second or third generation antihistamines. You can try second generation ones like claritin or zyrtec. Second and third generation antihistamine agents causes lesser / no sedation.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
