What is prescription for allergic reaction?

Hello. I had my first ever allergic reaction on Sunday evening. I got hives and my face swelled up. I went to the hospital and the put me on a drip and injected me with all types of things. I have been prescribed prednisone and something else for allergic reactions. I was told to only really start today (Tuesday). The hives have spread and weirdly, my hands and feet are in agony whenever I use them. I am struggling to walk at the moment. I have no more swelling. I am a little worried that I am experiencing these symptom so long after my initial reaction.

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern look for the allergic condition whatever may the reason for allergic reaction treatment is either antihistamine and steroid or both together and the class of antihistamine and steroid is some time matters, here I would treat this case with the antihistamine of second generation and that is Tab Levocetrizine 10 mg three times in day, have nice day.
