DS had his first allergic reaction, yesterday he woke up with hives. We took him to the hospital and the gave him redipren and phenergan. A few hours later the hives had gone, later that evening they returned but not as bad and in a different place, gave him another dose of phenergan and they gradually went down. Again this morning he woke with hives so we are still on the meds.
Any ideas how long it takes for the allergen to get out his system? We think it may have been caused by somE chilli con carne. Obviously since then I've only given him food he's eaten before.
We've had an awful long weekend not only has he had a reaction but we were at the hospital Friday as he had a mild asthma attack. I feel like we've been given a double blow now he may have allergies too.

The allergic reaction could have brought on the asthma attack
We had a very similiar problem with my toddler last week, the dr prescribed clarantine and it got rid of the hives and swelling after two days. But the dr said it could take upto 4 days.

Ours happened because of food colouring >_< first time he wants to try something thats coloured and bam. Dr also said that the second reaction is always worse than the first and not to let him try it again unless we can get him to a hospital asap.... Uhhh how about we dont try? Lol

DD2 had an allergic reaction to some antibiotics last year, it took about a week for the rash to completely go.
