Patient: I have had a severe allergic reaction with hives starting on Friday night, went to ER and was treated with prednisone, Benadryl and Zantac. Sat am woke with swollen tongue and lips. Went to urgent care and was given dose pack of prednisone, Claritin and epipen. This am woke with swollen eyes, ears red and face blotchy and red scalp tender. Still have some hives and itching. Should I use the epipen or use that just for aniphalaxis?
Symptoms: Hives, swelling
