Swollen lip and hives

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen lip and hives


Avatar f tn I have been tracking a few of them and they are lasting more than 48 hours. They no longer itch after 24 hours <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they are no longer red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. Just pinkish tiny bumps. New hives continue to crop up. I get some relief from Claritin and tepid baths. Can this still be "true" hives with the individual hives not entirely disappearing in a day? I have chronic inactive Hep B that is monitored.
Avatar m tn In the following weeks I had a few more allergic reactions (once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lips..<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a couple of times I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> on my wrists, legs, arms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ankle's). Then it suddenly stopped but appeared again somewhere in september. I don't have swollen lips often (mostly I wake up with that), but I often have hives on my wrists, legs, arms and ankle's). The times they appear seem to be completely at random (home, friends house, outside etc).
Avatar m tn Ok im not sure if i have allergies, but for the month of Feb i broke out 3 times with my lip being <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>...usually my top lip, My lip just got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> out of nowhere <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lasts for about 1hr-2hrs. and then i had hives breakout...that lasted for about 3 days. What should i do to help this problem out. Oh and i DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE.
Avatar n tn I've got the same issues. Occasional lip swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nocturnal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> (buttocks, back of legs, sometimes waist and abdomen and often at the wrists). I've tracked everything I eat and drink and experience in life. I sometimes think I have it figured out then prove to myself that I don't - so you may be surprised by the rice diet not working. Going to an allergist now (internist gave up). I've only had it for about a month.
Avatar f tn I had the same problem a few times last spring and summer and now it seems to be the same thing. My top lip would get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> either on one side or the entire lip at night. It would usually be back to almost normal by afternoon the next day. It started out slowly with just minor tingling sometimes, then progressing into a lot of swelling and taking longer and longer to go down with each time it occurred. Occurrences also go more and more frequent.
Avatar n tn can heavy (3 six packs in 6-8 hrs) of (Bud and sometimes dark) beer consumption in an 20 yr alcoholic begin to cause a very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> numb upper lip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> extreme breakout of hard itchy white hives on the back? the hives go away in a few hrs, while the lip can sometimes go for 2-3 days?
Avatar m tn I went downstairs to get some advil <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the sore throat got better. Next day I wake up in the morning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my bottom lip is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>!!! I was very surprised. I had no fatigue, no runny nose and no fever. My sore throat is still there but its gotten better. I know what you're thinking its an ALLERGY. Strange because I haven't had allergies before. The only foods I recall eating yesterday were muffins, a donut, noodles, orange juice and apple cider.
Avatar f tn My one daughter is latex/plum anaphylactic and the other one who is 14 is bee sting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> she gets a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> tongue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> glands in her mouth with a bee sting along with distant swelling elsewhere from the site, too and burn-like hives which blister and can be 4 feet away from the sting so they consider it an immedaite reaction and just on the tongue, alone, scripted an epi pen. An allergic reaction can turn anaphylactic ........ I'd insist on the Dr's helping you find an answer.
Avatar n tn My lips itch <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> burn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> are also sometimes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. They also peel, look dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> cracked, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> since this started, make me look much older I have gotten a salve from my dermotologist, which helps somewhat. (She said I am allergic to most toothpaste and I now use Toms which is a natural toothpaste - it has helped to some degree) I am constantly applying lip balm or chap stick, but nothing seems to help the problem entirely. My eyelids itch, are red and also get dry and flakey.
Avatar f tn The surgeon sent her home with oxycodone for pain management. She only took it 3 days because she developed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lips. We attributed this to an oxycodone reaction. However, it is now 3 months later, and the hives have not subsided. They are manageable with prednisone and other antihistamines.
Avatar f tn I've worken up in the morning with my eyes swollen shut or my lip bleeding because my lip was so stretched out it would blister <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> crack. My cheeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hard to my scalp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> face itching so much I can't get any sleep. For 3 years. Have been to an allegist and I'm not allergic to anything but apparently myself. Autoimmune hives, as I have hashimotos diease which is an autoimmune thyroid condition, where as the antibodies IgE are apparently high.
Avatar n tn I thought i had sunburn on my thighs because my thigs got all red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. WEll the next morning I woke up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> all over. I went to the doctor and they told me to take some bendryl. Well, that didnt work and finally in August I went to see the doctor again and she referred me to a allergist. The allergist gave me prednisone(steroids), Allegra, Doxepin for the hives, and a acid reducer. None of this has worked and nobody can figure out why i have these hives.
Avatar n tn appointment, a nurse does this) and while on the way there my lip blew up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> ensued. ughhhhhhh I also have a new ****-Zu puppy that was purchased in Feb. No hive outbreaks until end of May?? So far allergy tests say it's not the dog.. I'm wondering if this is hormonal related because my obgyn in her infinite wisdom changed me from the Estrogen patch to a pill that includes testosterone (Estratest).. OMG! I am itchy non-stop and the hives each time get worse..
610453 tn?1259108322 Recently we have found that my thyroglobulan levels are 10 times the normal level (most defitely accounting for my sudden lower lip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> severe swelling ). I am waiting for a consult with a new Endocrinologist....hoping he will have some miracle cure to lower this level once and for all and hopefully rid me of the hives. (but until then I continue with my allergy and synthroid protocol and always keep prednisone on hand in case of big flare ups.
Avatar n tn I have allergies to foods, but it usually results in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> around my body <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sometimes swelling of the tongue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> throat (which I'm already at the E.R when it begins), but never has one side of my lip swelled and not went down. I have no hives or any signs of an allergic reaction. Could it be irritation as I was playing video games and biting the bottom left side of my lip and proceeded to eat salty foods? Is it normal?
Avatar n tn This morning I woke up in hives everywhere from Tapazole, went to my Doctor (thank God he's open on Sundays), he gave me some Hydroxyzine for them, they began going right away, but tonight after dinner they came back in full force, now the tops of my hands are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the bottom lower right side of my lip is swollen, is this normal from taking Tapazole?
Avatar f tn Any advice? A week ago - my right eyelid was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itchy. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> upper lip was slightly swollen with rashes that was excreting sticky clear-ish fluid. Doctor told me that the eye was an allergic reaction to something and lip was a cold sore. Gave me antihistamine eyedrops. Next day - eye got worse (swollen but dry) and entire upper lip was swollen (still weeping). Also noticed an itchy rash in my hand with fluid in it.
Avatar f tn I have seen a Dermatologist who says I need to accept the fact that I will not know what is causing the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> to treat the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> (allegra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> zantac) I have seen the Allergist who wants to check for an autoimmune disease which I don't understand because Hashimotos is an autoimmune disease or problem I thought. My thyroid doctor says there is no link between the thyroid and the hives and has taken a leave of abscence from his practice.
Avatar n tn 5F fever and hives all over her face, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lip, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> eyelid. We just got her bloodwork done on Wed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> are awaiting the test results. The pediatric rheumatologist ordered those tests and we will know the outcome only after two weeks. So it is an agonizing wait. The docs suspect Lupus and JRA as well. I notice that you are in Bryan, TX. I am in SA, TX. I noticed that few others on this forum were also from a nearby area. Could environment be a factor? Or is it just a coincidence.
Avatar f tn They spread all over the back of my thighs and butt as well as my arms and at times even my face- They tend to occur when I sleep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I even sometimes wake up with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lip. The thing is- there are no bugs that I've found or any sort of discrepancy in that regard, and the bumps aren't itchy after I apply Hydrocortisone cream. Is this just an allergy or a result of having sensitive skin?
Avatar n tn What could cause a sudden attack of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> with stomach pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> diarreah? I had never had anything like this before, but yesterday about 30 minutes after breakfast I broke out in hives on my head and face, neck, underarms, under breasts, and lower abdomen. I had severe cramps that were below my navel and ran across both sides and lower back with more pain on the left side than right. I took benadryl for the hives and layed down in a fetal position until the pain passed.
Avatar f tn End of may I woke up with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> bottom lip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> went to see my allergist that day. I had an allergy skin test done and found that I had severe reactions (hives) to ALL grasses and the majority of all weeds and tree pollens. My hives began to progress to constant/severe around the beginning of June and lasted until my last taper with prednisone, which I started on June 20th. I was on this round of prednisone for 2 weeks, so I stopped taking it on July 4th.
Avatar n tn Although I'm not a doctor and can't make a diagnosis, your rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> tongue sound more like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hives</span> or food poisoning. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> there's no way HIV shows up after 12 hours. It's been known to happen in only 5 or 6 days, but not 12 hours. If you used a condom, you have nothing to worry about.
Avatar n tn I have been keeping a journal since my first outbreak. I woke one morning with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> upper lip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itchy scalp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> underarms. I wrote down all the foods I ate for weeks never finding a culprit. Then the pattern showed itself that I was mostly breaking out at night while in bed. Sure, I changed the sheets, the pillows, bed spread, heck I even slept in different locations but always the same result. Im not sure but I think its stress related.
Avatar n tn In this condition,swelling of lip(esp upper lip) is present. Swelling of face <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> eyes may also be present.Diagnosis can only be made after various investigations to rule out other causes with similar symptoms and biopsy of the tissue from the lip. Other possibilities are angioedema(due to allergic reactions),eczema,crohn’s disease,hives,myxedema, muccopolysacharidosis and acromegaly.It is important to rule out all of them and then reach a confirmatory diagnosis.
