I know this is likely a dumb question but I've never taken benadryl before. I have a severe mosquito bite. My friend who is a nurse told me to take benadryl for it to get the swelling and the pain to stop. I took it about an hour ago. I'm usually not tired until 3-4 am some times later (i went to bed at 7:30 this morning) but in the last half hour I feel like I've been hit by a freight train. I'm guessing this is a side effect to benadry??
Anyways the bite has yet to go down though. Its terrible looking. The bump is really puffy and sore and all around it is bruised I didn't itch it because the entire time its been so sore not itchy and I know its a mosquito bite I killed the bastard while he was doing his evil business. I've always bad really bad reactions never bruising though.
Anyways I think I'm a little flighty how long would it take for benadryl to make it feel better?
