Angioedema can present as swelling of the lips, tongue, face or sometimes hands or feet. It is most commonly seen in conjunction with hives but can occur separately. Some cases of severe lip, tongue or throat swelling can be life-threatening.
We can help by reviewing your history in detail, discussing possible triggers and perform testing as appropriate. We can screen for rare diseases that may cause swelling. We can prescribe aggressive treatments to keep this problem under control and discuss how an episode of severe swelling should be handled.
