I know that Benadryl is used for amelioration of allergic reaction to blood or plasma in anaphylaxis. I know also that it works by controlling the acute symptoms when oral therapy is impossible. I have problem similar to this so my doctor recommended me to use Benadryl. Before that, I would like to hear more about its ingredients. Can you tell me this because I do not like to use one drug when I do not know anything about it?
