Brief Answer:
Benadryl can be taken

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Here is what you should do

1. You can take Benadryl up to twice daily. It will help decongest your throat and nose
2. If you have a blocked nose oxymmetazoline nasal drops is the best to relieve it
3. I recommend steam inhalation three times day
4. I usually prescribe my patients Tab Fexofenadine twice daily, it gives them good relief. I give it for about 5-7 days
5. Avoid cold food and beverages until you are better

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

Regards
