    I have used it for hives before and it worked wonderfully.  My daughter has a tree nut allergy and if she eats something with hidden almond, walnut, ect...she takes a benedryl and the itching in her mouth & throat stop within 20 minutes.

    Yes Bebadryl is safe.  For some people, it causes drowsiness, but i never had that side-effect.  And you can try it for hives and see if it helps you.  I hope it will

    Benadryl is OK, as long as you follow the directions.  The only exception is that its toxic to seniors.

    It's very safe and its effects vary from individual to individual.   It's not very long lasting.
