  • It sounds like hives, but I don't know why on only one side. If you find that your throat itches or feels as though it is closing you should dial 911 and get an ambulance there.

  • You can be allergic to many things, and the allergy can show up from one day to the next. I would try some benadryl, it won't hurt and it just might do the trick.

  • YES YOU CAN.
    Do your own research and you'll find out about the terrible ingredients put into these powders and ready drinks if you dont know and trust the company selling, don't buy it just because you saw it on the TV or your friend told you is good.....most the times not even if FDA approves. You need to know exactly what you are putting into your body.
    Hope this helps

  • If you don't have it in the house, go to a store and get benedrl now and take it. Like the other post said, itchy throat, tongue, ect go to hospital, or dial 911. benedrl is a great product and highly effective. Good Luck.
