Brief Answer:
Acute urticaria

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
You have developed acute urticaria with angioedema.
It is an allergic condition.
You might have developed allergy to any food product or any new thing to which you have come in contact with.
I treat such case with oral steroid and antihistamine tablet.
Tablet prednisolone in the dose of 1 mg per kg body weight daily for 3 days works well.
You might require a prescription for this.
Please meet a doctor and get it prescribed.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
