  • I wonder what this weird rash is on my arms and back.
  • My eyes are swelling I hope I'm not having a serious allergic reaction.
  • Aden has red blotches all around his body much like a rash and is concerned because hes had them for weeks and they're spreading.
  • As a teenager/adult you need to take 25-50mg orally every 4-6 hours
  • As Aden is driving to the hospital his eyes and face began too swell. He realizes this is much more than a rash.
  • If you experience side effects contact me and stop taking the medication.
  • As the Doctor informs Aden,the red blotches are urticaria (hives) that were triggered by a medication he has been taking. He is able to distinguish the difference by the blanching and texture of the hives that are much different from a rash.
  • The Doctor prescribes an oral antihistamine diphenhydramine (Benadryl) to eliminate all hives on Aden's body. It can do this by blocking the effects of natural occurring chemical histamine.
  • Side effects of the medication include sedation, sleepiness, dizziness, and thickening of bronchial secretions. If you experience these contact your doctor. Do not use when breastfeeding.
  • Now Aden, after a couple weeks and being consistent with the benadryl is ready to continue living life itch free!
