Allergies are not the cause of all swelling diseases, despite the fact that they are the cause of many of them. Angioedema is one of the most frequent swelling diseases associated with allergies. Hives are a common name for this condition.
It causes swelling of the skin tissue in a variety of body regions, including the hands, eyelids, feet, lips, and tongue. Allergies to things like bug stings or specific foods are common causes. We’ll also look for some of the more unusual causes of angioedema, such as complement protein deficits linked to other systemic illnesses.
Eosinophilic esophagitis is a swollen condition that makes swallowing difficult, uncomfortable, or impossible. It is usually caused by food allergies and damages the tissues of the esophagus. Hay fever, often known as allergic rhinitis, causes swelling in the mucous membranes (rhinosinusitis), nasal passageways (sinusitis), or sinuses itself.
Ocular allergies are another sign of hay fever. These allergies can cause enlarged eyes, as well as puffy, red, watery, and itchy eyes. However, any allergen that the immune system determines to be a threat might cause swelling around the eyes if it comes into contact with that region.
First and foremost, we want everyone to be aware that swelling problems may be highly hazardous. This is especially true when they impact the airways since they can entirely prevent breathing. Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Medical Group‘s specialists are experts in immunology and allergy disorders. We will not only treat the swelling disease, but we will also investigate the underlying reasons to see if we can permanently eliminate these problems.
One of the first things we’ll do in most situations is do a complete allergy test to determine exactly what you’re allergic to. We can prescribe drugs to treat your symptoms and seek for methods to prevent similar problems in the future once we know what we’re dealing with.
