These usually involve redness, a rash, hives, and itchiness. While feeling the urge to scratch your skin off is not pleasant, it won’t kill you.
Immediately stop taking whatever medication that triggered it.
If it’s due to an animal, get away from the scene. Removing the dog will not do anything about the dander that it leaves behind.
Take an antihistamine. Pop an antihistamine tablet if you don’t mind being awake or a cough/cold syrup if you want to sleep.
To deal with the rash, apply different kinds of sprays and creams. Hydrocortisone should be a basic staple in an allergic person’s household. There are prescription level ones too. Some pharmacies carry an anti-itch spray that contains zinc acetate.
Other suggestions are to take an oatmeal bath and avoid sunlight. Keeping a minor allergic reaction from turning into a full blown attack is the primary goal.
If you are having trouble breathing or feel that your throat is swelling, call 911. That is an emergency.
