So let me preface this with I took 3 Benadryl about an hour ago and it’s not helping. I’m also allergic to THC and have dealt with two customers today that basically radiated marijuana smoke. My tongue has been swollen most of the day, I’ve got a killer migraine, and I’ve been slightly slurring cause of the swollen/itchy throat. Any suggestions help thanks in advance.
Edit: It’s started clearing up finally. Thank you everyone for your advice. Throat is still a little scratchy but I’m not slurring anymore and the migraine has eased up. Just got off work may still have my husband run me by urgent care just in case the itchiness isn’t from allergies.

The medication for stomach acid is also a blocker for allergies, so you might try like Pepcid or Prilosec.

Idk about your access to/availability of certain meds where you are, but I have this level allergy to a bunch of things.
I have a script for prescription-only antihistamines which are much, much more powerful than anything one can just buy over the counter. It’s worth discussing with your GP of possible
