Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I cannot make a diagnosis over the internet, but I can give you some advice regarding your dog. I don't know how much Benadryl you gave him, but you can give a dose of 1 mg/lb every 12 hours which can help with a lot of allergic reactions. If the swelling hasn't gone down by tomorrow morning, I would take him to the vet for an exam. There might be something else going on that the vet can address. Let me know if you have any questions.If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
