What is angioedema?

Swelling of the eyes, lips or other parts of the body, due to an allergic reaction. Triggers usually include external allergens like nuts, crustaceans, bee stings and drugs. However, in some cases this condition may be genetic and inherited in the family.

Symptoms of angioedema

  • Swelling of any body part

  • Swelling of the affected area

  • Swelling of the face and lip

  • Swollen eyelids

  • Swelling or water retention on one side of the body

Questions your doctor may ask to check for angioedema

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose angioedema

  • Do you have any swelling in any part of your body?

  • Is the affected area swollen?

  • Do you have swollen face or lips?

  • Do you have puffy eyelids?

  • Do you have swelling on one side of your body?

Treatment for angioedema

Severe cases will require emergency medical care. Steroids and anti-itch medicines can relieve symptoms. Thereafter, it is important to identify and avoid the cause of swelling. If the swelling is genetic, a specialist will confirm the diagnosis and recommend treatment options.
