Alternative to Benadryl?

So here's the deal. I have a mild non-itchy rash which is non-life threatening, the cause has been discovered (it was foreign fruity candy from a Halloween party) and eliminated, but I would like it to go away faster if that's possible through natural means.

I've been working to flush my system of toxin by drinking more water, but it's slow going. My friend told me to pop a Benadryl, but Benadryl gives me hives, so I'm looking for something natural to help cleanse the toxin from my body or at least make the rash go away.

I did some Googling and looked at the allergy/sensitivity tag, but most of what I was finding was long-term allergy advice instead of what do you do after the fact advice. Any help is appreciated :D Thank you for your time.

I'll state upfront that I am allergic to soy in all forms.

EDIT: Thought I should add Calamine also gives me hives.
