Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 6 months ago.

you can use over the counter 25-50mg of Benadryl

until you can get into your doctor to get a new prescription for hydroxyzine.

you can also use 1% hydrocortisone cream and benadryl cream on your skin as well.

Benadryl is similar to hydroxyzine.
