Brief Answer:
The symptoms would subside soon.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.

I have noted your clinical details. Based on this, I agree that the symptoms are suggestive of allergic reaction to Naproxen. Although naproxen is generally safe, and in many countries, it can be taken without doctor's prescription, some people do have allergic reactions. The good thing is that the symptoms subside soon. There is no specific treatment needed. Keep your self well hydrated. For dizziness, you may take betahistine tablets.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
