Ok. I have taken 2 benadryls with 2mg dose

Thanks.....first you should know that you have a problem that we see and manage almost every day in our eye practice. Most people get good relief from the itchiness and puffiness with an OTC eye drops called Zaditor 4 times day in each eye. It is very safe and effective. And you can use it at the same time as the benadryl. Also apply cool compresses to your eyes several times a day .Please let me know if you have any other questions.
