I will keep monitoring her breathing and take her to her doctor in the morning if her condition doesn't change.

Thank you for the input.

Response to allergen varies from person to person.

Often the cause of allergy may not be determined.

Benadryl can help in allergic reaction.

You can repeat the dose after 6 hours.

Ice can be applied.

Local hydrocortisone cream can be applied if it is in a small area.

If the swelling spread inside the mouth, you need to take her to ER.

If it does not improve, oral steroid can be needed.

You need to consult doctor if the symptoms continue.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating.

Wish her healthy life.

Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
