Hello, I started an antibiotic, got a pretty severe allergic reaction, went on Benadryl, went OFF Benadryl because it wasn t helping, and got prescribed Prednisone (steroid) and Cetirizine (antihistamine) to combat the reaction. Could this be enough cause for my late period, now late 3-4 days?

I got a sudden, throbbing headache, severe flushing all over my body, and diarrhea. No shortness of breath or constricted airway, though. I ve taken 2 Benadryl tablets. Do I need to go to the ER?
