Benadryl has always worked for me. However, you probably need to take 2-3 times the regular dose. That may be why the allergist said not do. It can be easy at those levels to overdose. I think you're safe with Benadryl. It's always worked for me. And see what your GP says as well. EpiPens are more effective and with lower doses. So, here is my completely irrsponsible, shouldn't follow advice. When you have a reaction, use your Epi Pen and wait to see if you require further medical attention. That's what I do and I haven't had to visit the ER yet. But then I use Benadryl since I haven't carried around an Epi Pen since high school.
