Diphenhydramine 

Indication

Diphenhydramine belongs to a group of medications known as antihistamines. Antihistamines are used to treat symptoms caused by Allergies, including itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose, and skin rash and irritations.

The cream form of Diphenhydramine is used for the relief of swelling and itching caused by insect bites, Poison Ivy, poison oak, mild cases of Sunburn, and other minor skin irritations.

Diphenhydramine works by blocking the effects of histamine, a substance released by the body involved in allergies. It usually starts to work within one hour.

Diphenhydramine may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Diphenhydramine may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Diphenhydramine may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Diphenhydramine for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are using Diphenhydramine, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
