Brief Answer:
exercise anaphylaxis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Jashandeep,

The swelling you are complaining of is due to the condition known as exercise anaphylaxis. You should be very cautious about this situation. It is not the exercise alone the etiological factor it could be weather, food consumed before workout or any other triggering allergen.
You should consult the doctor immediately to seek for medication like EPI pen for such further attacks.
Take care.
