Should she go to the hospital?

My sister is sick again :(
She is calling me asking what to do. She had an allergic reaction last week, the hospital gave her meds (prescription benedryl and a steroid)
She still is waking up with the puffy face every day, she keeps throwing up today. She has a weird feeling in her head and can't even keep water or gingerale or crackers down.

I think she should go to the hospital. She is calling her doctor (They couldn't get her an appointment last week even though she has been feeling bad for days! They wouldn't even book her an appointment, they just said "Call back Monday") and seeing what the on call nurse thinks.
Should she go back to the hospital?

I would try the doctor's one more time. The ER will keep her waiting for hours. No fun when you are feeling like she is :-(

Eh, she may be dehydrated?  If she has a weird feeling in her head and throwing up.  In that case she needs to be seen!  GL

How swollen is her face? If it's mild swelling than I would stick to the doctors office if the swelling is bad enough to affect breathing,eye function etc. then she needs to go to the ER now.
