Hello and welcome to HCM,
Swollen feet can occur after hanging the legs for a long period of time.
However, swollen feet at rest can be due to cardiac disease, hypertension, liver disease or renal disease (in later stages).
You need to consult a physician to know the cause of swelling of the feet.
Localized swelling can occur in case of allergy also.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
