How can I treat major swelling and itching after second laser treatment?

It's been several hours since the treatment. Have put ice on it and used cortisone cream and Aloe but it's still getting worse. On and under my chin and on my neck. Anything else I might try?

Using an over the counter anti histimine like Claritin or Zyrtec durning the day or Benedryl at night in addtion to the ice and hydrocortisone is helpful to treat itching in most patients
