Causes Of Sudden Facial Swelling?
excuse me want to ask why my face swells up by itself? 3 weeks once a week there was a swelling on the right side of the face under the eye and the right side of the eye, the swelling appeared around 12 to 1 pm, 2 days the swelling disappeared, the next week the swelling was again, what is the cause and the right medicine, and whether harmful to my health and body? thank you very much before
Swollen face can be caused by several possibilities:
1. Blefarokonjunctivitis, or inflammation of the eyelids and conjunctiva of the eye
3. Sinusitis, or inflammation of the mucous membranes of the sinuses on the face
4. Irritant contact dermatitis due to insect bites
5. Infection of the teeth / gums
Meanwhile, overall facial swelling can be caused by allergic reactions (for example to weather, dust, food eaten, certain drugs, facial care products, soaps, etc.), excess fluid (for example due to kidney problems, heart problems), angioedema (swelling under the skin), etc.
To determine the cause, a direct physical examination by a doctor is needed, data collection about symptoms through interviews, and supporting examinations if necessary. Treatment depends on the cause.
If the swelling of the face causes weakness, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, itching all over the body, palpitations, diarrhea, watery eyes, you should immediately see a doctor for help.
To reduce swelling, if the swelling feels itchy, you can use a cold compress on the face and do not scratch / touch, especially with unwashed hands. If you have a history of allergies, make sure you are not exposed to something that causes the allergy. For other causes of swelling, you must use prescription drugs.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
