do I need to go the DR? I live 15 miles from nearest.
If I stop today (did this already) is this enough to stop the symptoms?

Aleve (naproxen) will do nothing for your symptoms, except control the pain. It won't help settle the rash or the itching.
Aleve (naproxen) is in a group of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Naproxen works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
Aleve is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, tendinitis, bursitis, gout, or menstrual cramps.
Your symptoms sound serious and if you couldn't get to a doctor today I would say to take an antihistamine if you have any. BUT if you have a temperature or any nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, etc. then you need to see a doctor today.

Did Aleve cause these symptoms? Or are you taking Aleve to help with the rash and itching? If Aleve caused these symptoms you might want to call your doctors office, severe allergic reactions to this med can be dangerous indeed.
Hope you are feeling better,
