Benadryl is a good choice and any other antihistamine will help. Keep in mind that a reaction codeine or to any narcotic is like an allergy (itching, hives, etc) is really a side effect. Narcotics will cause direct histamine release from the Allergy cells(Mast cells) For this reason Vicodin (Hydrocodone) most probably will also cause the same reaction. The reactions may be different at different doses and some patients will tolerate alternatives.
