    Syphilis Treatment Causing itching?

    I got a penicillin shot for treatment of syphilis two days ago. A few hours after the shot I broke out in hives, had chills, and a low grade fever. I took Benadryl and Tylenol and went to sleep, when I woke up I felt back to normal. However I slowly developed an itch and it's gotten worse but there's no physical sign of any problem with me like a rash or bumps on my skin or even redness, taking Benadryl does not stop the itch. Is this residual effects from my slight allergy to penicillin?
