Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
If your lad has a small itchy skin lesion and you can prevent him from licking this off, then you can apply this to his skin as a short term soothing agent. Still, if he is itchy all over, then we can consider using the oral version of Benadryl. If this is the case, please do let me know his weight, his situation, and we can work out a dose for him to keep him comfortable until his vet opens.
All the best,
Dr. B.
