Suggest treatment for skin hives on body

Hello! I'm experiencing serious skin hives, which began about two and a half weeks ago. It began on my stomach (after using a new liquid soap) and now it's affecting my arms, neck, my scalp and even my ears. I can't handle Benadryl and penicillin (and cephalexin). I've had hives over and over again due to capsaicin allergies. Are there OTC substitutes?

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I can understand this you seems to have a hypersensitivity reaction, if I would be your doctor then I would treat this case with the following medicines
1) Tab Levocetrizine 20 mg three times in day
2) Tab Hydroxyzine 10 mg twice in day
Avoid all such chemical ingredient for which you have hypersensitivity, hope this information helps you, have nice day.
I find this answer helpful
