Post Laser Tattoo removal itching

I just had my first laser treatment on 2 tattoos 1 week ago today. I started experiencing extreme itching to the sites about 4 days ago and it is not getting better. I wake myself up itching during the night. Ice seems to be the only thing that will keep the itching at bay for a while. I was told to take Benadryl but cannot take it during the day because it makes me so sleepy. I am using Aloe and Cortisone from the clinic but it does not seem to work. Does anyone know how long this will last and is there a prescription or something I can take to make this more manageable. At this point I am not sure I can continue this treatment if this continues. Thanks for any help. Stephen
