Re: Chronic Hives/Angioedema/Food Allergies ...Need Advice

Oh, and I was thinking, about the Benadryl, she might just be outgrowing her dose because she is older. I prefer liquid because you can adjust the dose easily and it works more quickly. So you could just increase her dose by 1 tsp rather than the 2 tsp equivalent that an extra pill would be, if that makes sense. Target has a dye-free diphenhydramine (that is the active ingredient of Benadryl) which I really like. Actual brand-name Benadryl liquid is very hard to find anymore because of recalls earlier this year.
