Phoenix Angioedema Treatment

San Tan Allergy & Asthma

Angioedema is swelling in the deep layers of the skin. It is often seen together with urticaria (hives). Angioedema many times occurs in soft tissues such as the eyelids, mouth or genitals. Angioedema is called “acute” if the condition lasts only a short time such as minutes to hours. Acute angioedema is commonly caused by an allergic reaction to medications or foods. Chronic recurrent angioedema is when the condition returns over a long period of time. It typically does not have an identifiable cause.

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare, but serious genetic condition involving swelling in various body parts including the hands, feet, face, intestinal wall and airways. It does not respond to treatment with antihistamines or adrenaline so it is important to come see one of our providers so we can help manage and find the correct treatments for angioedema. “Skin Allergy Overview.” www.aaaai.org.

Common Symptoms & Causes of Angioedema

When you suspect that you may be suffering from angioedema, it is essential to know all of the symptoms so you know when it is pertinent to visit a doctor. Common symptoms for angioedema include large, thick, firm welts covering the skin, swelling and redness, and pain or warmth around the affected areas. These can all be caused by a variety of things including previously consumed foods, medications, allergens that you frequently come into contact with, and even contributing environmental factors. As angioedemas can potentially be life threatening, it is important to see a doctor right away.
