  on several occasions i have had what i believe to be an allergic reation, but i don't know
to what, my symptoms are a tingle sensation in either my upper lip or the lower lip and then
the entire area of my cheek and chin begins to swell, this condition last for several days.
i take benadryl capsules to try to help the smyptons to ease up. i can not figure out what
triggers this reaction, since at the time i am not eating or drinking anything and i am not in
contact with any animals. any information would be greatly appreciated

are you using really strong soap or detergent? lotion? are you using salt? try using soaps and detergents that have no fragrance. are you eating something lately that you don't normally eat?
it kinda sounds like a food allergy to me, so i would talk to your doc.

my mom gets that way after eating any kind of nuts. i have food allergies and sometimes i get reactions long after i've eaten . sometimes hours or a couple of days.
