Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Poor Jersey!

Now you have made a good start here, but if she keeps flaring back up, this suggests that the allergen is still present in her immediate surroundings or is something she ate. Therefore, we need to tread with care. We'd want to remove any new soaps/powders/sprays/etc in the house. As well, the dose of Benadryl you gave was a moderate one, so I 'd note that if it didn't make her overly drowsy you can double that and plan to give it every 8 hours for at least the next 24 hours. If that doesn't settle her, if she has any breathing issues, or she starts to flare back up at the end of that; then we'd want her to her vet for injectable steroid treatment. That way we can get this allergic reaction under control and get her through this safely.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
