allergic reaction - urgent help please

This answer was rated:

I'm having an allergic reaction to some kind of chicken seasoning. Took a sample at the grocery store about an hour ago. With in a few minutes my tongue swelled to 2-3 times normal size & I began to itch severly all over --palms of hands and anus first, then top of my head then all ever. Cold sweat with goose bumps all over.Then whelps began to appear all over my body. I immediately took 3 regular Benedryls--hard to swallow water. I left the grocery store & made it home. I took a cool shower. Still itching like crazy, so took another Benedryl (total of 4 now).Then my stomach began to hurt and diarrhea started. My tongue is going down & itching beginning to ease.

I still have diarrhea very nauseated.

Any thoughts on what caused the problem? Anything else I can do to get over it?

HI, Thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX and I am here to help you today. I will be happy to help you with your follow-up questions also. Yes this can be an allergic reaction, you should not have taken this much amount of benadryl yourself. Please go to ER without wasting time. You might need a shot of steroids. Please don't treat it at home.
