Aww. That sucks. Hope you feel better soon. Do you have Zyrtec or something similar. When I had an allergic reaction my doctor had me take benadryl and Allegra. I had hives for weeks. -_-

Did you know you were allergic to something in it?

 My husband keeps reacting like that to something and we can't figure out what.  I think it's something in his patrol car because it always happens during his second shift in a row. Keep dosing yourself and try and try an oatmeal mask!

It took me many years to realize that i am allergic to a preservative. I cant have anything made by Hunt's brand. Its a pain in the ass. At home, i know already which of my staple foods I can eat with out reacting.. but when we go out to ear, theres no teling if the preservative is in there
