Antihistamines counteract the histamines generated in the system- obviously. I have asthma and allergies (most trees and grass). You might want to google this subject as it’s really complicated as to the physiology involved.
The rash might have been caused by something other than the wood. Poison ivy? Molds. Insects in the wood? I also have the same problem as Jeremy G. My wife accompanies me to the Woodcraft store and stands between me and the wood so I don’t get that reaction!
