Brief Answer:
Need to find cause of allergy

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Development of welts can occur due to various reasons like intake of antibiotics or pain killers of due to any body infections like respiratory infection or abdominal or urine infection.
A complete blood testing for leukocyte counts along with thyroid profile and urine and stool assessment might be required to find out the exact cause .
For the time being, if benadryl isn't performing well, you can take oral antihistamines like loratidine regularly to bring the allergy under control .
Avoid outside good.


Hope it helps
