Patient

Q: 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

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
You have extremely bad allergy, which 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
