Detailed Answer:
Hello,my name is dr.Dorina Gurabardhi.
Welcome to HCM.

Your symptoms seem to be related an allergic reaction.
Some advices that I can give to you are :
-take oral antihistamines like cetirizine 10 mg daily
-use calmine lotion for local relief
-take prescription corticosteroids by tablet or injection.(discuss with your doctor about this treatment )
-stay in cool room and also cool shower can help
-try to reduce exposure to the allergen
If you have difficulty in breathing you should go to the ER for a better management of the situation.
Hope my answer was helpful.
If you have any other questions I'll be glad to help.

Kind regards!
