Most likely the allergic reaction is due to one of the medications you are taking. Amoxicillin or Percocet are the most likely sources.
I would try a tapering course of oral steroids. I have had excellent results using a short 5 day course. Discuss this with your surgeon and follow his/or her advice.

In your case specifically, see if your plastic surgeon recommends oral or intravenous steroids, if you don't seem to be responding to the medications you are currently using. For what it's worth, some of my patients have reported significant relief using cold water or compresses and/or oatmeal "bathes" on the skin involved. Unfortunately, once the immune "cascade" has started, it may take several days/weeks for the allergic symptoms to resolve. Best wishes.
