Causes Of Facial Swelling?
Good morning. Recently, my mother has complaints about her swollen face (like allergies) for the second time. The first time I checked it at the nearest clinic and information from the doctor was that allergies were prohibited from eating shrimp and the like (never before had this kind of allergies) then my mother only ate rice + tofu every day like that but starting yesterday her face started to swell again. What is it ? Thank you
Hello Fadel, thank you for using HealthReplies.com service
Swollen face is the result of fluid accumulation / buildup in the skin tissue on the face. The causes also vary, most often due to allergic reactions in the body. In addition there are several things that cause facial swelling, such as:
Obesity Facial injuries Severe malnutrition Reaction after blood transfusion There is an abscess on the teeth or the area around the oral cavity If you have been examined and stated to be allergic, the causes of allergies can vary, so you have to dig deeper about what was eaten last time before the mother whatever you sleep, or is there something your mother uses on her face before going to bed, or does your mother take certain drugs before going to sleep. Allergies can be various, such as food allergies, drug allergies, or even allergies due to insect bites and can also be allergies due to air / extreme temperatures.
It is better if you take your mother to see a doctor, to find the cause of facial swelling, whether it is related to a previous history of allergies or not. If the cause can be found, then treatment can also be done appropriately, and prevention can also be done to prevent these occurrences in the future.
For temporary prevention, several things can be done such as:
cold compresses on the face with swelling, cold compresses can use cold temperature water, so as not to disturb the comfort of the sufferer, and do a trial first on a closed face such as under the chin, or beside the temples, so as to avoid temperature allergies, use a pillow that is rather high, so that fluid accumulation does not accumulate in the facial area, always remember and avoid all kinds of things that can cause allergies to recur again. Sufficient nutrition and nutrition for sufferers so that their immune system is maintained. Consult a nutritionist for the intake of foods your mother needs to consume, and find out what certain foods your mother cannot consume related to her history of allergies. Because if the daily intake is only fulfilled with rice and tempeh / tofu, then other nutritional needs will not be fulfilled just by consuming these foods.
A few of us hope this helps. Thanks.
