The past few days (near a week), I have been incredibly itchy and rashy. For example, upon wiping my mouth on a napkin after lunch, my lips start burning and feeling all numb and inflamed. This is even happening when I'm talking. Also, I keep being itchy and then once I scratch it, it gets massively red and welty.
I don't have any new shampoos/detergents/fragrances, clothes, bedding, etc. The only thing I could think is that my histamine levels are up for some reason. My one guess is that since I have a dairy allergy (diff. than lactose intolerance) and I've been taking in dairy this holiday season, it has my body on high alert.
Has anyone else every had this? Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with this?
P.s. I can't take enough Benadryl to squelch the itch without getting far too drowsy.
