I feel for you having both a DH and DD who react. I think you will just have to be patient. For both of them, it took a good couple of weeks for them to recover but this will vary, dependent on the level of antibodies you already have etc. Don't be afraid to take paracetomol etc if you need it and try to take it easy.

Bad luck. The rash will fade and the antihistamine will help take down the redness and itch.

Make sure when you get back that you inform your doctor of the allergic reaction so that it is marked on your notes and you never get prescribed it again.
