Default I got into something..

....That did not like me. I'm not sure what it was either. Yesterday my wrists, knees and elbows started itching and my lips have swollen up. I'm guessing its an allergic reaction to something I just don't know what it is. The only thing I can guess is either Lemon poppy seed muffins. (which I've had before and loved and no reaction.) Or maybe the biospot that I put on the pups. (which once again, I've used before and no reaction.) Willow did have a weird "reaction" to it. She refused to walk, bit at her back, and yelped when she moved. So I immediately used Dawn dish soap and washed it off her. She's been fine since.

I've taken Benedryl which put me out for most of the evening. (I fell asleep at 7:30 p.m.) But its now 1 a.m. and the swelling is still there so I took some more benedryl and hope when I wake up, all this will be gone.

Anyone ever have an allergic reaction to something? What do I do if its still there tomorrow? Will it eventually go away? Help.. I've never had this happen before.

If you still have it when you get up I would go to the doctor or at least call your physician and see what they recommend. I have never had a severe reaction like that to anything so I don't know what else to suggest. I truly hope you are back to your normal self soon and it is nothing serious.

My appt is for 11:30. I was really hoping for one sooner. Whatever it is, is now on my hands along the knuckle area, my knees really bad now, and I noticed it along the top of my foot.

I've been trying all day yesterday and all night to figure out what I may have ate, drank, or touched that was different than in the past and I just can't pinpoint one particular thing.

Two more hours...argh! This itching is killing me.

I've heard of reactions to people with those pesticides. If you google BioSpot reactions you'll see TONS of stories about that stuff Let us know what the doctor says, I hope you feel better soon!

Ditto to what Katie said, I just googled bio spot and some people did have some problems with the product. Maybe you can try frontline next time. My dogs do well with it. I hope you feel better soon.
