Brief Answer:
Urticarial skin rash due to medicine intake

Detailed Answer:
Hi

You seem to have developed an urticarial skin rash. Now this is basically an allergic skin reaction. The most likely cause seems to be the intake of cialis tablet that you took a day back .
You need to start intake of some oral antihistamine tablet soon. You can either take tablet claritin once a day or benadryl in the adult dosage. You might need to continue intake of oral antihistamines for atleast three to five days. This is the time the drug will take to clear out completely from your body.
Also you should avoid its intake in future since it is very likely to cause an allergic reaction everytime you take it.

What dosage do you recommend. The benadryl box recommends adults take 1 or 2.

Dosage of antihistamine.

Since you have a severe allergic reaction, you can take 50 mg three times a day.
Or you can take tablet claritin once a day.
