Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am currently not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Is she having difficulty breathing?

2- How much does she weigh?

Friend, it sounds like she is having an allergic reaction. If you have access to ER vet I would have her checked tonight. If you don't have access to ER vet start her on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg 3 tablets every 12 hours for the next 5 days. You can buy Benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy. Follow up with family veterinarian.
