Benadryl Drug Information
Benadryl Cream Overview
Benadryl Cream is used to temporarily relieve itching and pain caused by minor burns/cuts/scrapes, sunburn, insect bites, minor skin irritations, or rashes from poison ivy, poison oak, or poison sumac. Diphenhydramine belongs to a class of drugs known as antihistamines. It works by blocking the effects of a certain natural substance (histamine) that causes itching. Benadryl Cream may also contain other ingredients (skin protectants such as allantoin, zinc acetate) that may help relieve symptoms such as dry skin, weeping, or oozing. Read the product package for more information. Depending on the brand and the form of diphenhydramine skin product you are using, the package information may state that its use is not recommended in children younger than 2, 6, or 12 years unless directed by the doctor. If you are self-treating with Benadryl Cream, it is important to read the package instructions carefully before you start using Benadryl Cream to be sure it is right for you. (See also Precautions section.)
How to Use Benadryl Cream
Use Benadryl Cream only on the skin as directed by your doctor. If you are self-treating, follow all directions on the product package. If you are uncertain about any of the information, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Some products may need to be shaken well before use. Before applying, clean the affected area with soap and water. Gently pat dry. Apply to the affected area as directed, usually no more than 3 to 4 times a day. Wash hands immediately after use, unless the area being treated includes the hands. Do not use on large areas of the body or use more often than directed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. Avoid getting the product in your eyes, nose, ears, or mouth. If the medication gets in these areas, wipe it off and rinse the area right away with water. Stop using Benadryl Cream and tell your doctor if your condition worsens, if symptoms do not improve within 7 days or persist after 7 days of treatment, or if symptoms clear up and return in a few days. If you think you may have a serious medical problem, seek immediate medical attention.
Benadryl Cream Precautions
Before using Benadryl Cream, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to diphenhydramine; or to any of the other ingredients listed on the product package; or to dimenhydrinate; or if you have any other allergies.

This can increase your risk for serious side effects or may cause your medications not to work correctly. These drug interactions are possible, but do not always occur. Your doctor or pharmacist can often prevent or manage interactions by changing how you use your medications or by close monitoring. To help your doctor and pharmacist give you the best care, be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products) before starting treatment with Benadryl Cream. While using Benadryl Cream, do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any other medicines you are using without your doctor's approval.
