However, after few hours it came back again. Rashes/hives came and go. It changes forms but it didn't matter how it looks, it was pretty itchy. When I got home from my trip, I took benadryl and went to bed. After couple hours, I woke up feeling nauseous and just didn't felt good at all. I went to ER, the doctor gave me benadryl IV and prednisone. After few minutes, skin cleared again. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, itchy rashes/hives was on and off. Sometimes it was more of an on t
