Hi there ....

This seems to be some sort of ALLERGIC REACTION .

It would be ideal for you to get immediately Tab Benadryl 25 mg and apply Hydrocortisone cream over face to overcome itching and other symptoms .

Immediately get Benadryl and proceed as I advised you .

If you feel difficulty in breathing immediately rush to ER

Good luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
