If she's holding her own, you can try to up the benadryl dose a bit. Our 55-pound males sometimes need 75 mg of Benadryl three times a day to get an allergic reaction in check. If you're uncertain of the dose for your dog, calling your vet or an e-vet should confirm how much you can safely give.

Good luck with your dog! Keep us posted on how she's doing!
+1 to that. It's a very good advice if symptoms do not go away by now
