Hi Tizz I have red dye 40 allergy and my doctor has me taking dye free benadryl when I accidently have some. I usually take 2 and it will stop the itching and put the fire out. But it also knocks me out. If I HAVE to stay awake (like to drive) I will take a claritan and it well help the reaction from getting worse but not really do as much good as the benadryl. I did ask my pharmacist and she said that Benadryl is what you should take when it is a non-life threatening reaction. I guess a doctor can prescribe prescript
ion strength too or recommend you take more than the over counter dose. I wouldn't try that on your own though.
