Generic Benadryl®, also called diphenhydramine, stops itching in its tracks by blocking the production of histamine, a natural compound in the body that triggers inflammatory symptoms in response to allergens. Pollen or dust are some allergens that cause inflammation, making eczema symptoms worse. Generic Benadryl® typically provides relief within 2-3 hours and can be taken multiple times a day or at night to help you sleep.
