Was stung by yellow jacket under eye. Why swollen eye ached? Allergic reaction?

I was stung by a yellow jacket just below my right eye. By that evening my eye was really swollen and my whole eye socket ached. Late that evening I took some Benadryl . When I woke up, I had a rash all over my chest. Do you think I am still reacting to the bee sting , or am I having an allergic reaction to the Benadryl?
