You are lucky that it went away on its own and that you were able to continue to do things while it was going away. Some people react more severely and need to have steroids (prescription medications, often administered intravenously) in addition to or instead of antihistamines.

i work in the ER and trust me people come in for a lot dumber reasons lol, only you can decide if you need to be seen in the ER and you can always go to a walk in clinic, sometimes i may get a hive or two and a antihistamine does the trick. if your skin is still irritated then you can even try an over the counter cortisone cream to help with the itch.
