Thank you for writing to us.

It appears that you are having a viral infection with tonsillopharyngitis and would recommend throat gargles and an antihistamine tablet such as cetirizine 10mg or levocet 5mg or loratidine 10mg.

However, if you are getting constant swelling attacks involving the face, abdominal pains or swelling affecting the fingers or extremities, you need to see an Immunologist. For now, if the above medications work there is no need to do anything else.
