No, Benadryl is not a bronchodilator, it is an antihistamine. It works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms.
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is used to relieve red, irritated, itchy, watery eyes; sneezing; and runny nose caused by hay fever, allergies, or the common cold. Diphenhydramine is also used to relieve cough caused by minor throat or airway irritation. Diphenhydramine is also used to prevent and treat motion sickness, and to treat insomnia (difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep).
