Sometimes I tend to get allergic reactions to all kinds of different things. I can get allergic reactions to things that touch my skin, such as a new laundry detergent that I use for different kinds of plants. I can also get allergic reactions to different foods that I eat, which will cause redness and itching on my skin sometimes accompanied by small bumps.
When I get one of these very particular allergic reactions, it is very difficult to combat the intense itching sensation that accompanies each reaction that I experience. Many times all I can do is close my eyes and try to block out the sensation.
The only medication that seems to call the itching at all is Benadryl. Especially if I am experiencing a particularly mild allergic reaction and the itching is not too intense, taking one or two Benadryl tablets and laying down to go to sleep will usually get me through the worst of the experience.
If it wasn’t for Benadryl, my experience with allergies would be even more uncomfortable and intense than they are right now. This makes me extremely grateful that the medication was invented and is available to the public.
