Patient : I have a swollen eye, a headache, hives everywhere and my throat is slightly swollen. What is going on?
Symptoms:  Hives,headache, swollen eye and swollen throat
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. You have extremely bad allergy, whic h probably started because of dust, or some kind of food item you were exposed too. You need to take Tab. Claritin 10 mg for 3 days, at bedtime, and this will reduce. If it does not, you may need steroids. Hope this was helpful, Regards
