  • My daughter is allergic to milk products so I always keep Benadryl around for allergic reactions to food.

  • give her a dose of benedryl and keep an eye on her for swelling or wheezing. It does sound like an allergic reaction so I would give her ped a call to get an appt or a referral to an allergist, in the mean time avoid citrus fruits until you get her tested. If it is an allergic reaction the next time she has it the reaction can be more severe.

  • Also, give her water to drink, kind of "flush it out".
