    Delayed reaction iodine contrast dye

    Several days After a recent CT Scan of abdomen, including oral barrium & IV iodine contrast dye, I experienced multiple symptoms:
    Shortness of breath
    Exhaustion - sleep for hours
    Brain fog
    A few days later Hive-like rash, now legs & arms.
    Finally found references to Delayed iodine contrast dye reactions that led to alignment of symptoms.
    Started OTC antihistamine + foods considered diuretic, ie watermelon, asparagus, etc & pushing liquids.
    Any suggestions on how to help recover from this reaction?
