Welcome Back!

Sorry to take so long to respond we are recovering from Hurricane Irma You will need to give the benedryl twice day for two days before you really seem to notice it all going away. It should start clearing after the first Benedryl if it is indeed allergies. If it is something he is coming in contact with, eating or inhaling, that can make the reaction harder to get rid of. I would do the Benedry every 8 hours for 2 days. If it does not clear, then a Vet visit will be needed, to try and determine the cause.
