Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Swollen mouth without the pain and fever usually appears due to allergy. Especially if there is no tooth ache, no cough, no shortness of breath. It can be due to food allergy, dust mite allergy. You should try allergy medicine like Loratadine once a day and calcium. If any signs of airways obstruction, immediate medical attention might be necessary.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

My son has a raised rash on the backs of each hand and elbows, which he has had since yesterday. He has had a similar rash many times before when playing in grass. He has been playing soccer on grass turf all week. My husband gave him one loratadine (active ingredient - 10 mg) tablet 2 hours ago because he could not find benedryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) at the time. I have the benedryl, can he take some now (2-4 tablets - 12.5 mg). If yes, how much? If no, when can he take benedryl.

Hi. My Daughter has a cough and rash on her forehead (tiny bumps) no fever, no itch no pain no other symptoms. Plays well, eats well and sleeps well. She has been taking Claritin for spring allergies and started on mucinex yesterday to keep her cough loose. I m puzzled by the tiny bumps on her forehead. The community pool just opened this past week so could it be the pool water?
