Brief Answer:
Looks to be an allergic reaction

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Male/ 69 - swollen face, eyes, itchy rash in groin and under the arms - started as mild swelling in in one eye yesterday...
With the short history this looks to be an allergic reaction to some allergen.
Keen observation by you and your family can know the causative factors.
Take an antihistamine and see the results.
If no relief you may have to see the Doctor for proper clinical evaluation and proper additional management with prescription based medications and to rule out diabetes, blood pressure and such medical problems.

I hope, this answers your query, please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.

My husband has shingles and was treated with 7 days of valacyclovir...and some tramadol for pain. He has finished the valtrex, but does not take the tramadol as it was too potent for him. The intitial outbreak has crusted over and the scabbed areas have fallen off...there have been no new outbreaks. He was treated on the 4th day following the first visual of the rash. It has be 15 days since first noticiing the rash...and he has some blood in his urine once a day for 3 days....in the afternoon. Can the virus be a cause of the blood?

Since switching to SweetLeaf Stevia My husband and I are both suffering from severe gas. Is this normal? Will it subside. Neither of us has had this problem prior to using the Sweetleaf. I stopped the Truvia and it s noname brand equal a couple of weeks ago due to the other additives in them. I am allergic to Sucrolose and had to eliminate this from my diet. It causes rash on arms and legs and irregular heartbeat.

Hello, I am trying to figure out why I ve been getting rashes on and off for the past couple of years whenever I go on vacation and get exposure to the sun and ocean. I have Addison s Disease and hypothyroidism and don t know if the bumpy clustery bilateral rash has to do with my autoimmune disorders. The rash goes away in a few days and is non-itchy but uncomfortable. It usually starts on the tops of my feet and spreads to my hands (in between fingers too)...right now it is on my thighs and hips.
