If he has rash that flared back up then posting a picture to this page may be helpful ( usually many devices have a tool bar with paperclip icon and this will allow upload of file such as picture to this page )

You may try a second 25mg Benadryl plus a Zantac 75 mg (one or two of these ) ( yes it is usually for stomach trouble but it is An H2 blocker which is a second type antihistamine ) ( benadryl is H1 type antihistamine---- both types together give stronger response to control allergic reaction or itching ---)
